New Natural Kolarctic Product SME Assistance (KO5094)

Programme funding: 44 990 € Total budget: 99 022 € Duration: 01.02.2021 – 31.01.2022

Project aims to develop a better understanding of the real needs and priorities of SMEs in the Kolarctic region with respect to development of New Natural Kolarctic Products (NNKPs) with assistance from research institutes and academic institutions. The target group are SMEs, and they will be invited to present success stories, priorities and needs and problems that they have encountered in the development, approval and marketing of natural products based on local raw material resources.

Organizations will also receive an overview of the existing R&D institutions in the Kolarctic region which have academic knowledge, laboratory capacities, and innovative technologies which could be used for development, testing and production of NNKPs from the natural resources of Kolarctic. Our intention is to organize effective interactions between these two types of organizations in the form of interactive web-resource and face-to-face contacts allowing meeting the needs and capacities of both ends.
