Evaluation of SME participation in FP7

Oxford Research participated in the “Interim evaluation of the participation of SMEs in the Cooperation Programme and the Research for the benefit of SMEs schemes under the Capacities Programme of the Seventh Framework Programme”.

As a partner in EU- wide consortium led by Panteia, Technopolis Group and KMFA we have delivered a number of case studies and a wide cross European telephone survey covering participating SMEs. On behalf of the project our team delivered a total of twenty case studies in all four Scandinavian countries.

The overall objective was to evaluate the results and impacts of the programmes:
- to assess the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of the 2 initiatives,
- to assess the impacts on the SMEs participating in the 2 initiatives, including the impacts on economic performance, European added value (EAV), behavioural additionality and innovation.
