  23. 23. Positive aspects • possibility of funding for the individual company – no need of consortia • higher frequency of deadlines / cut-off dates – more frequent than RIA • wide thematic scope of the SMEI calls • adequate amount of funding – for small SMEs • low bureaucratic burden – in proposal preparation (forms, 10 pages) / possible reporting
  24. 24. Positive aspects • rather quick feedback in Phase 1 evaluation • funding of the innovation in SMEs • funding of significant part of the innovation cycle – feas. studies > R&D > demo > tests • access to the innovation/business mentors – provided a good number of high profile experts will be subscribed in the coaching database
  25. 25. Negative aspects • MOST IMPORTANT: Feedback (ESR) on Phase 1 proposal – very few information provided – no comments for possible improvement – very subjective (subjectivity of the judging process is highly influencing the selection process )
  26. 26. Negative aspects • TRL – unclear definition (e.g. transition between laboratory and operational environment) • strong correlation between countries of beneficiaries and evaluators • missing notification about ESR • page limit (10 pages)
  27. 27. Main observation – Slovakia in SMEINST • great initial enthusiasm • disappointment from the success rate • lot of rumours • efficiancy of the SMEINST management • consulting companies • we are (slowly) getting better • future ... work with the promising business plans
