BSR Stars

Jump to: navigation, search

BSR Innovation Express targets groups of SMEs and/or cluster initiatives and their partners (e.g. technology providers, large companies, universities, research centres, etc.) in the Baltic Sea Region. With their proximity to firms, cluster organisations (or similar) are considered as an effective vehicle for involving SMEs which have more difficulties to develop international cooperation. They can also help them identify relevant partners to initiate trust‐building processes and generate market impact. Eligible applicants are SME networks or cluster governances located within a geographical area where a BSR Innovation Express funding partner is present (see funding partners below). Proposals must be submitted by the representative of the SME network/cluster initiative for the benefit of its SME members – in accordance with them and driven by their internationalisation needs.

Submission deadline: final submissions being made by October 31, 2014
