  Euro-NGI acknowledges the important role of SMEs
        as fast moving, technological highly innovative entities.
       SMEs, however, may be short of specific research resources in order to complement
         their own competences.
    An efficient interface
       between SMEs and the available competences of the Euro-NGI network is being
    The SMEs will take advantage of:
       the global and unified view of the field and of the main technological trends provided
         by the documents the network is producing. Indeed,
       SMEs usually don’t have enough internal resource to afford this type of analysis and
    Contractual issues
       may be a major obstacle for the cooperation between university researchers and
       The network can support the cooperation by providing help, e.g. in terms of fair
         contract templates with regard to IPR issues.
    Another objective of this activity is to collect and arbitrate requests for exchanging:
       students, researchers and staff people between SMEs and the academic members of
         the consortium.
       Example: Support sabbatical stays of researchers within SMEs or co-advisory of
         students with SMEs.

            financing that will depend on the size of the company and on its
            usage of the Euro-NGI resources.
             • For example, as indicated before, Euro-FGI could commit on providing
               a certain amount of person days of expert consultancy to the members
               of the club, depending on their contribution.
