KIM Relevant experience

The European Union is committed to make Europe a competitive and innovative region by setting up the cooperation and financing programmes that favour collaboration between European partners.

KIM participates actively in these projects to pursue its mission of improving European competitiveness and offers its expertise to partners and clients, to facilitate their acces to projects of innovation and territorial development.

KIM has participated as a partner in projects funded by the flagship programmes of innovation (FP7 and Horizon 2020). In all these projects, KIM has lead the Work Package on Dissemination and Exploitation, using its know-how and its contact network to disseminate the results of the project and to help to bring the resultant technology and solutions to the market, using the best route. KIM has also been a partner in prokects funded by the MED Programme, wich works to enhance innovation, environment and accessibility. In these projects, KIM has used the experience in IPR management and training to contribute to the goals of the projects.

The involvement of KIM in European projects has not only been as a partner of the consortia. KIM has been selected and contracted as an external expert in various projects task funded by different programmes, such as Interreg IV-C, ENPI CBC MED, SUDOE, MED Programme of the Lifelong Learning Programme. KIM has provided these projects with its expertise in project management, communication and dissemination activities, training activities, business-modelling tasks, and more.

Due to a refined experience in European projects and a wide network of partners, KIM has come to develop comprehensive service agreements with various entities interested in participating in European projects. Chambers of Commerce, clusters, business associations and innovative enterprises are key partners in European projects, but they sometimes lack the specific knowledge of institutional mechanisms to set up and manage a project. By setting up an External European Project Offices, KIM detects interesting opportunities tailored to the needs and interests of the entities, helps them to write the proposal and to prepare the budget for it. Upon approval of the proposal, KIM gives support in the negotiation phase and offers its knowledge and skills in the execution phase according to the agreements.
