These open workshops offer different services to companies which are particularly advantageous in the development phase and enable them to press ahead with innovations. Up until now SMEs were not very familiar with these workshops and above all, with the opportunities and services they offer. This cross-border project aims to remedy the situation.
From the very beginning, the focus is on SMEs and their needs. Subsequently several firms will be given the opportunity within the context of a pilot project to use innovation-relevant services offered by labs to support them in doing research, testing or in the design development of product and service innovations..
