ROSIE’s outputs are tools and training to improve RI capacity, with a comprehensive RI strategy and transnational Pilot to test tools and strategic proposals.
Outputs benefit key innovation actors: public authorities gain a policy framework, business support / sectoral agencies enhance SME support services, SMEs improve innovation processes.
Short-term change sees increased capacity of innovation actors (min.75) and SMEs (min.315) to design and implement RI strategies and proposals for RI policy governance.
ROSIE promotes medium-long-term change through improved territorial, socio-economic integration, SME competitiveness and evolution of a comprehensive RI system.
The transnational approach uses quadruple helix stakeholder engagement and covers:
- Exchange and partner training on RI tools that can help SMEs to understand RI, identify RI needs and define strategies, work with the innovation chain;
- Development of RI Road Maps in local areas and CE macro-region, using transnational exchange and capitalisation;
- Transnational Pilot Action (grouping 9 local areas) for SME capacity building, RI tool application and fund leverage.
