BSR Innovation Express 2016 Call Launch 2 May 2016

Innovation Express represents a common approach for supporting the internationalisation of SMEs through cluster initiatives.

Innovation Express is a joint call for proposals implemented within the framework of the BSR Stars programme. The call is funded by national/regional funding agencies to initiate, develop or enhance transnational cooperation activities – leveraging cluster organisations (or similar) to develop proposals for their SME members.

Following positive experiences from calls in 2013, 2014, and 2015, the BSR Stars management has agreed to launch another Innovation Express call this year – including the regions of Brandenburg and Catalonia as cooperation and extended partners. The Innovation Express call is open between 2 May – 31 October 2016. Details on eligible applicants, application procedures, etc. are available in the call text on the Innovation Express webpage. Applications should be submitted via a unique, common online application portal.

You can also register to attend this year’s cluster-to-cluster conference and matchmaking event “Internationalisation the Strategic Way” to be held in Warsaw 19-20 September at Innovation Express Cluster Matchmaking Conference 2016.
