Being able to quickly react to changing market needs, SMEs play a pivotal role in the economy. Whether the core business of an SME is Information and Communication Technology (ICT) or not, offering the best possible solutions to the customer often means adopting or developing innovative ICT products and/or applications.

The internet is hot and in full development. For internet research, development and innovation several support opportunities – financial as well as non-financial – are available on European and regional scale.

The goal of this half-day session is to provide a clear and concise overview of supporting European and Flemish initiatives that will help organizations active in or in contact with the ICT field to create and release better internet products, services and applications in a shorter period of time.

The presentations will be given in English.

Audience:

As the focus of the information is on opportunities for SMEs, they are the prior audience. However, with this session we intend to stimulate Research, Development & Innovation networking. Therefore we welcome other organizations, also from abroad.
