SmartEEs project kicked off 14 September 2017 in Grenoble (France), for a duration of three years, and with the aim of making disruptive innovation accessible for European innovative companies. The project will provide access to the state-of-the-art of European research, equipment and infrastructures in a process adapted to their internal organisation and capacities while at the same time, it will support them by reducing market risks and increasing investment readiness level.
