The main instrument of SMART+ for the promotion of innovation and support of small businesses is the funding of sub-projects. Within the framework of the mini-programme, seven transnational sub-projects will be implemented from May 1, 2011 to April 30, 2013.
They have been selected through a call for proposals directed at public and public equivalent bodies, for example universities, chambers, business development agencies and technology centres. Each sub-project involves institutions from at least three SMART+ partner regions.
While each of them deals with a specific topic and addresses regional issues, they all have similar objectives in that they aim at the promotion RTD and innovation in small businesses.
The following sub-projects have been approved:
· Innovative and Responsible
· SME Go Global Networks (SMEGoNET)
