3 1. General Statistics: EIC Linz received a total of 314 questionnaires from most EICs. Our colleagues from the ten new member states were not only the fastest to return the questionnaires to us but also the ones who sent us the biggest quantity. We received 13,38 % of all questionnaires from Poland, 10,83 % from Lithuania and 10,83 % from Romania. The fifteen old members were a bit slow in sending us the questionnaires. EICs from UK, Portugal, Luxembourg and Malta did not participate in the survey at all. From the 314 questionnaires received, 52 % of the companies have not yet taken part in EU programmes. (Illustration 2) From the 48 % who have taken part in EU Programmes were % successful and received a subsidy,16.55 % were unsuccessful and 7.95 % did not state whether they were successful or not.

O:WG Finance/Results EIC AT 605, /28

20 5. Summary of all free-text answers: 5.1 A Programm suitable for SME should consider the following points: Simple, easily understandable, standardized documents starting from the tender/programme information until the final evaluation including documents like tender, directives, guide books, reference sheets, letter of intent, certificates, etc. Clearly defined criteria for selection and evaluation A basic information in the language of the country i where the programme information is published. This should include information for which type of SMEs the programme is suitable, what is the objective, deadlines, which documents are needed, who can be contacted for more detailed information; the rest of documents could be all in English to save translation costs Whether or not an application is successful should depend on a clear system of points: e.g. below 0-40: failed, has a good chance provided some things are corrected, funding is granted Transnational partners should not be obligatory; instead SME should get bonus points when they do cooperate with foreign partners. The necessity of transnational partners should be changed into just partners, perhaps from the same state but from different counties/regions.that way SMEs could learn teamwork/cooperation before they graduate to cooperate with transnational partners Big programmes should be divided in several smaller lots which could be handled by smaller SME without external help Deadlines should be long enough to find partners and prepare the application There should be a fast response from Brussels whether funding will be given or at least a quick reaction as to whether a project is shortlisted There should be a possibility to improve an application, to supply missing data, in general to be given the opportunity to correct an application if there is only a small item/issue that needs to be corrected. Clear and speedy information why project application was not successful Programmes have to be flexible to adapt to changing situations (in the region, in the companies management, partner situation, etc.) O:WG Finance/Results EIC AT 605, /28

21 5.2 Following points should be discussed in detail: 1. Special Funding programmes for small SMEs (0-9 employees) should be available 2. Special Funding programmes covering a life cycle of an enterprise e.g. a programme suitable for start-ups (1-3 years ) or young companies (up to 10 years after set-up) and established Companies (older than 10 years) 3. Special Funding-Fonds for uncomplicated Co-Financing; Funds or loans should be made available so that SMEs can participate without financial constraints 4. Subsidised training programmes for SMEs on subjects like: how to file an application, Project Management Knowledge-Management etc. (EICs who have special know-how - particularly members of the ex-working Group EU-Financing or reference points could hold/organise seminars 5. SME could have an observer-status, in big programmes with transnational partners in order to get some more experience before tackling a project application on its own 6. SME should develop cooperation know how and competence gradually; there should be funding projects on local/nation level, than on international level (with 1 or 2 transnational partners and then finally on global level with several international partners. 7. Pre-Evaluation teams who could advise a company as to how improve applications in order to be successful (check that there are no formal mistakes, etc.) 8. Establishment of independent authorities/offices who advise companies whether ideas and projects are worthwhile to be considered for funding (could be special task for EICs knowledgeable in Funds and Finance) 9. Companies who have a constant rate of growth should get an Extra Bonus Point when evaluating an application 10. A user-friendly software should be made available for consultants and/or EICs to facilitate budgeting and filling out forms 11. Consultants who specialise in advising companies concerning Funds and Finance should be accredited/properly qualified and audited by DG Enterprise so that companies can rely on correct information and advice. 12. Development of information management (software) between strategic and operative partners 13. Companies have to stick to certain deadlines; the same should apply to the authorities issuing the tender or programmes e.g. to inform about the results of the application within a certain period of time. O:WG Finance/Results EIC AT 605, /28

22 14. Application should be accompanied by an doc. Information for Applicant where evaluators could immediately make their remarks /give their points/ and return this one document to the applicant as soon as possible => this way companies will know quickly the results and/or the reasons for failure and learn to do the right thing next time 15. There should be a Finance-Panel where representatives of companies, consultants, National Contact Points, Finance Experts, evaluators, programme-developers EICs, etc. meet regularly to discuss improvements => necessities/objectives of programmes/projects would be more realistic, more innovative; selection and evaluation criteria would be better coordinated 16. If a subsidised innovation project proves to be commercially successful, a certain amount/percentage of the original subsidy could be paid into a Funding-Fonds 17. There should be a interactive Information system between the Money-Giver and the Money-Receiver similar to DHL or Amazon where you know about the status or can trace the delivery of goods 18. Information about EU Programmes should be published in different media, different information offices (Ministries, EICs, IRCs, etc., by different means of communications 19. EICs could offer a EU-Programme/Subsidy Monitoring Service and act as liaisons offices between European Commission/Funding Experts and the companies 20. EU Programmes/Funds should also be available for traditional companies (SME in various branches/sectors) wanting to expand/export and not only for companies active in research and development 21. Funds and Finance Control (could be a new task for interested EICs) - coordination between EU and national funding authorities - coordination between the Players of the Funds and Finance Scene - coordination of economic, political, legal framework 22. It would be advisable to have one national Clearing office in a member state where information of all EU subsidies that are given to or available in that state, are recorded. (would increase transparency) In any case, SMEs should be effectively supported with proper financing programmes in their endeavours to become more international or more competitive worldwide. It is also important that programmes are flexible so that they can be adapted to a quickly changing economy/situation/region. O:WG Finance/Results EIC AT 605, /28
