Companies do not necessarily have the facilities, financial resources or human capital to run their research projects as they would like to. Thanks to the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), it is now possible for SMEs or other companies to collaborate with academic research organisations, have access to their equipment, and integrate some of their highly skilled researchers within the research projects of the firm.

Transferring cutting-edge science and technology from creative academic groups to SMEs is a key element of successful innovation. We know that well-trained, entrepreneurially-minded researchers who can move between academic and other settings are essential to this successful collaboration. This is why the MSCA are promoting Business-Academic collaborations that focus on giving researchers adequate skills and opportunities to contribute to SME and other business growth.

In order to give more practical information on how to get involved in our actions, and to present the latest business opportunities under the new Framework Programme for Research Horizon 2020, the MSCA have launched a promotional campaign across Europe. The application process and concrete examples of partnerships will be explained during these information sessions.
