    Regarding our field (Plastic Industry) this list of fairs does not fit with our companies and projects.
    I would suggest to focus efforts in big international fairs hold in Europe with an international projections. In our case this would be the K(Kustoff) fair in Düsseldorf every 3 years. The Investment (time and funding) in this kind of fairs are highly profitable for companies.
    Best regards

    Thank you for your comment. We have a high number of SMEs in many market sectors. We do our best to keep into account the business needs of all SME Instrument Champions.

    Concerning the trade fairs in Europe, we are in the process of evaluating in which one we will bring a delegation of SME Instrument Champions.

    Regards

    SME Instrument Phase 3 team

    Hello,
    When you say that Phase 1 and Phase 2 SME Instrument Champions can apply, you mean that a company had to have won both the phases or Phase 1 winner only can also apply?
    Thank you in advance and best regards.

    You dont need to be successful in both phases. Phase 3 services are open to all SME Instrument beneficiaries (Phase 1 or Phase 2).

  • Anna Mannila's picture

    Can companies with successfully ended SME projects also apply, or is the OTF only for currently running projects?

  • storejo's picture

    Hi Anna, yes even if your project is not running anymore, you can participate to the OTF programme. As a former beneficiary you are part of the SME Instrument community and you are allowed to participate to all support activities under Phase 3. Johanna@EASME

  • Hakan Umit's picture

    Would it be possible to include an event with a topic related to IoT or smart grids?

  • storejo's picture

    Dear Hakan, we have a fixed number of trade fairs that we will attend with the “SME instrument stand” in 2017-2018 outside Europe but if you would like to participate to the OTF programme and you need a tailored-made guidance to match these trade fairs with your target market and target geographical economic region, please don’t hesitate to contact the Overseas Trade Fairs teamOverseasTradeFairs@sme-instrument-otfs.eu.
