Introduction To Vision
The project will jointly support SME’s and entrepreneurs to develop new products and bring those products to market by assisting businesses to identify & assess the viability of new product ideas, create and test working models and adopt the appropriate business techniques needed to manufacture and market those products worldwide. The project will also aim to spread good practice in design analysis amongst businesses in the cross-border region and will facilitate the establishment of relationships between cross-border SME’s through the development of clusters on product and materials applications. Activities include, developing technology transfer partnerships, seminars, networking and research.
