The whole indicative financial support to address the challenge of workplace innovation in SMEs is up to € 1,5 million. For a single network, the Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution of up to € 0,3 million is appropriate. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.
Who is it for?
This action is aimed at regional and national innovation support agencies that design and/or implement innovation support programmes for SMEs and that are important intermediaries for SME innovation.
What is supported?
This call for proposals supports the creation of interregional networks to share best practices and create long-term mechanisms supporting the uptake of workplace innovation by SMEs across Europe.
The winning projects will inspire SMEs to take more advantage of the opportunities offered by workplace innovation and will help to improve the framework conditions for the uptake of new technologies.
How to apply?
Proposals must be submitted electronically using the electronic submission system of the Participant Portal. Note that if you want to participate in a project proposal, your organisation needs to be registered in the Participant Register of the Participant Portal and have a 9-digit Participant Identification Code (PIC).
