INNOWWIDE: Call for experts for Viability Assessment Projects in international markets
The INNOWWIDE consortium is launching a call for experts with relevant expertise in areas such as technology and innovation transfer, market research, internationalization and accessing new markets.
The evaluation process will start in early June 2019 with a total duration of 7 weeks.
- First stage: 10th June 2019 – 28th June 2019
- Second stage: 1st July – 19th July 2019
The INNOWWIDE pilot call aims to bring innovative European SMEs to the forefront of international markets by funding Viability Assessment Projects (VAPs) in cooperation with local stakeholders around the world, creating the conditions to increase the uptake of European innovative solutions in markets outside of Europe. The programme follows a bottom-up approach, with no specific topics to be addressed.
Viability Assessment Projects (VAPs) are a comprehensive, balanced and coherent set of preliminary technical, market, legal and socioeconomic assessments intended to validate the viability of international, innovative businesses solutions along emerging global value chains.
They should identify and assess key framework conditions that may favour or impede the effective deployment of collaborative solutions and models in target third countries.
The VAPs also include a refined and viable definition of such business solutions and models, together with their implementation strategies.
The functioning of INNOWWIDE is entirely dependent on the evaluations performed by our individual experts. Experts use their skills and knowledge within their field of expertise to provide objective assessments. They ensure that only the best ideas have the opportunity to receive public funding.
