Lots
Lot number Title Description
Lot 1 Lot 1: connecting SMEs to the digital market: fostering the knowledge base on digital entrepreneurship in Europe The aim of the first lot is to foster the knowledge base on the state of play and evolution of digital entrepreneurship in Europe. It will set up a monitoring mechanism to follow up, measure and appraise the key trends in digital entrepreneurship, including information and communication technologies, emerging market needs, new business paradigms and their impact on the European economy. This monitoring mechanism should help identify new business opportunities for SMEs and entrepreneurs and suggest suitable support measures to boost entrepreneurial action in the digital era.
Lot 2 Lot 2: stimulating industrial innovation in the construction sector through smart use of ICT: connecting SMEs in digital value chains The aim of the second lot is to improve the competitiveness and efficiency of the construction industry in Europe by stimulating an innovative and seamless use of ICT along their value chains. In particular, SMEs are at the centre of interest of this action, as the objective is to facilitate the participation of SMEs in global digital value networks and enable them to become international business partners. More specifically, the actions will complete a framework for interoperability among different ICT solutions and systems, building on existing communication platforms, ICT systems and standardisation work and joining them in a seamless architecture at European and/or international level. Its ultimate objective is to create an innovative, seamless e-business environment that would stimulate and enable the uptake of ICT and e-business technologies, notably by SMEs, in the construction sector, a highly SME-intensive sector, hard hit by the current economic downturn in Europe.
