About the Network and the services
TEST-4-SME Network unites easily accessible testing laboratories of Baltic Sea region with necessary equipment and best-practice procedures. Network reduces the barriers to innovation that SMEs meet in the product testing phase.
Knowledge sharing between partners is a key aspect of Network. It involves key stakeholders of focus area: research institutions/academia, the business community (SMEs) and public authorities. Partners have created a database of laboratories in the region that offer testing of electronics components reducing bureaucracy, time, cost and difficulties when using testing services. The database will later be used so that regional competence centres (project partners with laboratories) can direct SMEs to the most suitable service provider in the proximity. Network also increases innovation capacity of SMEs in the region as they will be able to more effectively validate their newly developed products.
Network governing rules provides that each Baltic Sea region laboratory of testing services can join the Network as competence centre by signing agreement. For more information click on button below.
