Project summary SCALE UP plans to improve policy instruments supporting SMEs capacity to growth in national and international markets. Main objective of SCALE UP is to contribute to European competitiveness and accelerate regional economic growth through the improvement of 6 policy instruments linked to business growth and robustness. SCALE UP represents six EU regions (plus Advisory partner) with different stages of development in terms of industry SMEs scale up but common needs.   The following scale-up key areas have been identified to work in the project: New business collaborative models; Improve collaborative culture between science, technology, innovation & industrial companies; Regional smart specialisation sectors in form of partnerships/networks/clusters; use & adaptation to new technologies and accessing to finance tools.   SCALE UP work plan has been designed following a coherent and integrated approach where all the activities are interlinked and framed in a logical path. The approach starts with an analysis of partners’ local situations to identify valuable practices which will be then reviewed (through site visits and peer reviews) in a perspective of transfer and adaptation, to design and implement 6 action plans.   These stages are backed up by structured activities and a learning process to improve the level of development of business scaling policies and knowledge of key actors (Interreg. Policy Learning Events, brokerage events, roundtables, open innovation seminars, etc). Stakeholders Action Groups will be created in each region and main local & regional actors will be actively involved in the whole interregional learning process.   Scale-up business is part of the objective of supporting SMEs growth, to support regional authorities to respond adequately to key obstacles that obstruct industry sector on their path to growth taking into account the conditions of the current worldwide markets. €1,290,802.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jan 2023 Topic SME competitiveness Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? ERDF Regional Operational Programme Murcia. Priority 3 (d) ERDF Operative Programme of Murcia Region includes TO3 Improve competitiveness of SMEs. Within its OE.3.4.1; there is an action devoted to the support of productive investment and boost competitive advantages for regional companies, through projects that will aim creation, enlargement and improvement of their facilities and quality   On the other hand, within OE.3.4.2, there is an action devoted to the support of initiatives fostering business collaboration, especially on RIS3 strategic sectors. On it, business collaborative projects will be identified and boosted. There are in addition several actions that foster internationalization of SMEs through dissemination of existents tools, clustering, training, orientation, consolidation measures, etc.   This policy envisions to take advantage of complementarities among companies to deliver new R&D&I projects and increase internationalization of their products and services. It aims to increase number of SMEs considered as innovative through business association.   Help the SMEs to be able to set alliances with main manufacturing companies from principal European industry sectors it is not specified at Murcia policy instrument. SMEs can provide innovation to large industries and through that relation contribute to the creation of new R+D+I project and to the increase of innovation in regional economic sectors.

Regional Development Agency of Murcia Region Opperational Programme EFRE 2014-2020 Hessen Cluster networks are able to increase the collaboration between SMEs as well as between SME and R+D institutions, which enhances the innovation potential of every actor involved. Thus the program is targeting the following: • Joint initiatives for enhancing the collaboration between SME and Institutions such as research facilities • Information networks between companies, universities and other partners who are organized in the cluster network • Technology transfer between companies and R+D institutes • Involve external knowledge in the innovation process of companies • The joint usage of technical resources to enhance innovation The funding includes the following four phases of cluster development: • Preparation • Starting • Continuation • Further Development   The policy instrument shall be improved because the funding of cluster networks does not address any measures to explicitly encourage SMEs to engage in the industrial renewal. The objective to fund cluster networks to stimulate innovation processes in SME is very broad and general. To strengthen SMEs in the industries relevant for our region, special instruments are necessary, which focus the activation, collaboration, growth and innovation processes of these companies and bring them into international cross-sectoral knowledge exchange. Those tools that might be most adequate and relevant to reach this aim, needs to be evaluated in this project.   Which partners are working on this?

Each BIOREGIO project partner will create an Action Plan in their regions in order to improve the policy instrument tackled within that region based on the lessons learnt from the BIOREGIO interregional cooperation focusing on the bio-based circular economy. The Action Plan specifies the nature of the bio-based circular economy-related actions to be implemented, their timeframe, the players involved, the costs (if any) and funding sources (if any). The action plans are written in local languages with a summary in English. All the Action Plans are available from the project Library and subfolder Action Plans.FINLAND - The Päijät Häme Region: Päijät-Hämeen biokiertotalouden toimintasuunnitelma/ Päijät-Häme Bio-based Circular Economy Action Plan  (both in Finnish & English)SPAIN - PROYECTO BIOREGIO “Hacia una economía circular basada en los recursos rgánicos” (2020-2021) PLAN DE ACCIÓN, both the Spanish and English versions of the Action Plan are available in the LibrarySLOVAKIA - AKČNÝ PLÁN PRE OBEHOVÉ BIOHOSPODÁRSTVO V NITRIANSKOM SAMOSPRÁVNOM KRAJI and ACTION PLAN TOWARDS CIRCULAR BIOECONOMY IN THE NITRA SELF-GOVERNING REGION available in the LibraryGREECE - The Region of Central Macedonia: Action Plan towards Bio-based Circular Economy and Περιφερειακό Σχέδιο Δράσης για την προώθηση της κυκλικής βιοοικονομίας and here as wellROMANIA - ACTION PLAN TOWARDS BIO-BASED CIRCULAR ECONOMY Sud Muntenia Region, Romania both in Romanian and English languageFRANCE -  PLAN D’ACTION VERS UNE BIOÉCONOMIE CIRCULAIRE EN PAYS DE LA LOIRE and PAYS DE LA LOIRE BIO-BASED CIRCULAR ECONOMY ACTION PLAN Sign up for the BIOREGIO newsletter Subscribe now Tweets by BIOREGIO
