INSPIRE is a Coordination and Support Action funded by the European Commission which aims to profes-sionalize Open Innovation (OI) processes within Eu-rope’s SMEs.


To achieve this goal, INSPIRE sets out to study a critical mass of SME Open Innovation cases and translate the findings into an Integrated Toolbox, a targeted support framework to be offered and exploited by SMEs and innovation practitioners in Europe.
The findings of INSPIRE are to be disseminated extensively to a wide audience (industry, policy and the research world, civil society) to raise awareness and drive the formation of a living community which can share knowl-edge, experience and opportunities to promote better OI processes in SMEs.
