SURVEY ON INNOVATION VOUCHER SCHEMES IN YOUR COUNTRY/ REGION


MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THIS SURVEY
1) To know more about different innovation voucher schemes running in Europe, to improve results from INNOVOUCHER EU Project (*).

2) To know about your interest in participating in the implementation of the pilot phase of INNOVOUCHER Project that will focus on testing the proposed methodology and, specifically, boosting your Region’s enterprises and knowledge centres to export their services to other countries in Europe. Your participation in the Project might enhance the opportunities of excellent researchers and other specialists in your Region to transfer their knowledge transnationally and accelerate the spin-in of technologies and knowledge in other enterprises.

(*) What is INNOVOUCHER EU PROJECT?
INNOVOUCHER Project aims at creating a voluntary collaboration and brokerage framework in Europe for innovation voucher programmes, to provide SMEs with accessible and excellent knowledge and innovation support services.
The project will develop a model for implementing transnational innovation voucher programmes; a network of regions and countries willing to create a Single Market in Europe for knowledge and innovation services delivery; and a “European label” that entitles those regions and countries to join that collaboration network.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Nº 671295.
