Here, at least one supplier organization and one Customer Firm in SME scale - this may also be a large-scale organization - must apply jointly. We do not have any subject and sector limitations. While SMEs develop the product by doing R&D, the Customer Organization will support the execution of the R&D project as intended. Thus, information will be shared, disseminated and quickly transformed into a product. In projects focusing on R&D, the co-development mechanism will accelerate and the culture of cooperation will become widespread.
INTERACTION WILL INCREASE: Our second call is to Support Patent-Based Technology Transfer. There are patented technologies developed in universities, research infrastructures and technopark companies. Our call aims to transfer patented technologies to the industry. The interaction between technology producing organizations and their customers will increase and service purchases will be supported. Technologies protected by national or international patents will be transformed into economic value through licensing or transfer.
