Who is involved in the LMI: cooperation is key in
obtaining fast implementation of the action plans

   Member States:
     • Ministries of Economic/ Science Affairs, European Council,
       Competitiveness Council
     • Standardisation, public procurement and regulatory
   Stakeholders: business organisations, NGOs, trade unions,
    insurance companies, regional and local authorities, VC,
    European Technology Platforms etc. For each sector, there is a
    ‘contact/advisory’ group with strong industry participation
   Networks: EEN, industry/SME networks, cluster networks
   EC internal coordination: 15 different DGs, both sector and
    regulatory departments of the EC.
Question: How to optimise the use of our
building blocks?
• EEN has 3 activity modules and has
  established at least 6 Sector Groups in
  LMI sectors

• LMI focuses on 6 market sectors
  with a tailored action plan for
  each market

   Waste management
   and air pollution

Sector group leaders and LMI task force leaders were contacted early October
Cooperation with EEN Sector groups on
the basis of the 6 LMI action plans:
• Develop activities in regions and countries
that complement the LMI activities, ex. in public
procurement, regulation, standardisation
 • Ex: stimulating innovative public procurement by
 bringing together local procurers and high tech SMEs
 in the 6 LMI sectors
 • Ex: asking SMEs about what local/regional
 legislation hampers their innovation programmes in
 these 6 sectors
• Providing intelligence about LMI-related
measures in MS and regions
 Direct involvement of EEN partners in
 LMI activities and support-activities:
 CIP programmes, for ex.:
 • EIP Europe INNOVA/ PRO INNO activities with
 LMI link
 • Call of networks of public procurers in
 support of the LMI

 Regions of Knowledge call (FP7) with LMI link

 Activities funded by structural funds
