SMEs and Start-ups often need funding due to limited financial resources for product developments or to bring their product on the market. A promising approach for companies is a participation in European Projects. The funding is usually high but there are often obstacles like the proposal process or administrative challenges. In this Session we want to discuss  from different perspectives how to improve the situation for companies, e.g. what regional clusters can do to better involve SMEs in EU funding schemes. We will have SME pitches, which report about their experiences with EU programmes. Last but not least we will have a Panel discussion with representatives from regional clusters to discuss the topic.
