E-SME – Electric-Mobility meets SME

The common challenge of the project is the strengthening of cross-border competition, innovation, network co-operation and service&product innovation for SMEs as well as to reduce the lack of innovation and information on the performance of E-Mobility. The overall objective is to increase the cross-border competitiveness and innovativeness of SME´s through know-how- and network transfer, development of services and demonstration in the field of e-mobility. The overall project objective can not be reached without cross-border cooperation. All E-SME services and outputs across are cross-border and bilingual. The main outputs of the project will be 17 events to e-mobility know-how transfer, the initial situation, the sector overview of E-mobility, concrete SME pilot models for services/products, two cross-border electric rallies, one E-SME Network and one EU Study Tour. The target groups are SME´s, companies, research and educational institutions, public provider, authorities, interest groups, NGO’s and the general public. For SME’s/companies the topic of e-mobility will be examined for opportunities to competitive market approaches across borders for the first time. So innovative SME-pilot-models for services/products and an active e-SME Network will be created.
