The project carries out analyses and research activities to:
- define the methodological aspects which could lead regional/national actors to successfully adopt and finance support structures and R&D&I instruments via synergies between funds;
- assess past performance of post 2004 countries and regions in previous Framework Programmes, their strengths and weaknesses in terms of R&I capacity, institutional features, and alignment between public R&I and business innovation needs.
Based on the results obtained above, the project further aims to:
- prepare R&I actors to use ESIF resources to become more competitive in H2020 calls (i.e. sequential funding), and
- amplify the innovation impact of these two funding sources (i.e. simultaneous and/or parallel use).
