The Öresund region has a large number of SME’s, if more of them utilized the regions first class academic and other research facilities for product development and problem solving the product added value increase would be substantial.
To achieve this obstacles have to be removed. One such obstacle is matching company need with the right expert.
The Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak interregional development fund is financing part of the project Öresund Match. The project goal is to set a structure to facilitate contacts between SME’s and research institutes. To do this clusters and other organisations close to SME’s must have a structured cooperation with research institutes. The clusters use their normal contacts with SME’s to collect development issues facing the SME’s, together with contacts at the relevant research facility the issue is evaluated and the SME is put in contact with a researcher.
To put this structure in partners in Sweden and in Denmark do the same thing. At the end the goal is to have a common structure for the Öresund region.
The project is partly financed by Interreg Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak.
