Enterprise Europe Network - Service for Innovation and Cooperation

Enterprise Europe Network - Service for Innovation and Cooperation

The Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) is the largest European network for promoting cooperation between science and industry - especially for small and medium-sized enterprises. In Lower Saxony, the Enterprise Europe Network offers free of charge support for universities, research institutions and companies in the fields of EU, innovation and internationalisation. Collaboration with our approximately 600 network partners worldwide opens up opportunities for cross-border cooperation.

The EU Liason Office and uni transfer (technology contact point) at Leibniz University Hannover have been partners in the Enterprise Europe Network since 2008. Together with the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and the NBank, we form the Enterprise Europe Network of Lower Saxony.

OUR SERVICE

Our target groups are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), universities and research institutions in the Federal State of Lower Saxony.

Contact to international research institutions and companies

As needed we provide you with contacts to potential international cooperation partners for R&D projects, technology transfer partners or business partners through the Enterprise Europe Network. As your local contact partner, we can draw on the entire network to provide you with suitable contacts for your needs. Additionally, we mediate offers such as international business trips and cooperation exchanges.

Implementation of innovation management audits

In a cost-free innovation management audit, companies can learn how innovative they really are. The consultants of the Enterprise Europe Network identify the technology and innovation potential of companies throughout that audit. The aim of the audit is to create a profile of verifiable strengths and weaknesses of companies in the innovation process and to help them establish cross-border business activities.

Exploitation of research results

Through the Enterprise Europe Network we support the exploitation of research results from universities, such as new technologies, products and services. We provide contacts to potential users from industry and science - including international and cross-industry contacts.

Advice on European funding opportunities

We advise you on contract or cooperation research. European funding programmes (e. g. SME instrument, Fast Track to Innovation, Eurostars) cover a broad thematic spectrum. We will help you identify the most appropriate funding programme, advise you on planning and support you with your application.
