The Healt4Growth partnership identified the most challenging barriers of SMEs’ development in their regions, and will work along the following objectives:

  • Explore and develop new models to improve the cooperation infrastructure between all players of the health sector, and find solutions for regulatory problems hindering commercialisation of new technologies;
  • Explore options to ease the access of SMEs to finance and the design of innovative, sectorspecific financial schemes;
  • Explore the options to improve management skills of SMEs and transfer know-how on available training programmes.

Objectives will be accomplished by an integrated approach, with the involvement of relevant stakeholders and capitalizing on partners’ experiences and know how, exploiting complementarities in the best possible way.
