PARALLEL SESSION C

C4 SMEs Involvement and Engagement Initiatives from BSOs

Thu 3rd Oct 11h15 - 13h00

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) represent 99% of all businesses in the EU. They are often referred to as the backbone of the European economy, providing a potential source for jobs and economic growth. SMEs are often well suited for the Big Science market. SMEs can offer considerable more flexibility and in some cases are better prepared to adapt to specific technical requirements of Big Science organisations in advanced technology procurements. These procurements usually entail development and manufacture of a small number of particularly innovative units in a given technology field which quite often don´t fulfil the business model requirements of large industries, but can be more aligned with the SME’s growth strategy based on involvement on highly singular projects.
SMEs selected through the SMEs Call will be formally invited by the IOC to take part in this parallel session and its panel discussion.
