19/05/2014 - The European Defence Agency publishes Europe Economics' study on R&D/R&T contracting policies in support of SMEs

The EDA has published a report conducted by Europe Economics, entilited 'Study on R&D/R&T contracting policies in support of SMEs”. The study is to identify contracting policies that would be most effective in raising the participation of defence-related small and medium sized enterprises (SME) in R&D/R&T programmes and defence equipment development projects. In particular, the study examines: incentivising SME participation in co-financed (government and industry) national R&D/R&T programmes; establishing a common requirement in national R&D/R&T contracts to integrate an SME when contracts exceed a certain threshold; and requiring or persuading primes and higher tier suppliers to open a percentage of their sub-contract business to SMEs and non-traditional suppliers.
