E-consulting technical assistance service on FP6 project development for SMEs from associated candidate countries

The project's general objectives are to directly support SME participation in FP6 by means of new, highly cost-efficient supporting tools. The project will target SMEs from all ACCs focusing on all sectors, although IT, biotechnology, energy and environmental sectors may be preferentially treated together with SMEs lead by women managers. In order to promote their participation in FP6 innovative e-consultancy services will be established that will directly assist SMEs in FP6 project development and proposal writing.
