Over 250 SMEs and research organisations attended the FP7 Health Partnering Day held in Brussels on June 10, 2011, organised by Fit for Health and Health-NCP-Net. SME’s and researchers shared their experiences and stressed the importance of selecting the right projects, carefully forming partnerships, having the full support of management, understanding intellectual property rights and maintaining a market oriented focus.
This award concludes the three years inquiry conducted by KAPPA-Health among a sample of healthcare research-intensive SMEs involved in Health programme FP6 and FP7 projects.
The main objective of the project was to identify the tangible ingredients of success and their consequences in terms of strengthening the capacity of SMEs to better exploit the results of the research conducted by FP6 and FP7 projects.
During the event, the KAPPA-Health Project was pleased to present Coris BioConcept, Molecular Machines & Industries, Genewave, BIA Separations and Cézanne with an award recognising their efforts and successful participation in Framework projects.
The awarded SMEs are representative of the wide range of successful research-intensive SMEs. Due to their strategic involvement, these SMEs turned their active participation in EU FP research projects into success stories. Their experience and recommendations contributed to help the new candidate SMEs to enter in an FP project with greater chance of success.
