Strategic guidance of Danish SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises)

Megavind observed in the 2014 strategy “Danish Knowledge Institutions and their contribution to a competitive wind industry” that cost-sharing research projects rarely has SME participation, the reason being that SMEs generally need some help to engage in such research projects. Consequently, there is a need for an increased focus on knowledge sharing and sharing of current challenges and visions for the future, to help assist SMEs to utilize research projects as a tool to make them more competitive and pro-active.

The role for Megavind in this context is to be the catalyst in relation to contact with programs and funding opportunities, both nationally and internationally. It is, however, not the role of Megavind to help with funding on specific projects. This task should/will be carried out by regional programs and business development centers.

Megavind’s Annual Consolidated Agenda will set the overall direction for the activities guiding SMEs. This includes activities conducted by The Danish Wind Industry Association and activities for innovation networks, such as “Udviklingsprogram for underleverandører” (Development Programme for Suppliers) focusing on turbine sub-suppliers and activities for Offshoreenergy.dk focused on offshore wind installations.

Working topics:

  • Guidance of SMEs in the form of an updated list of funding calls, news service e.g. for call monitoring
  • LCOE workshop

Form: Targeted Communication work aimed at providing timely information to SMEs about funding opportunities (incl. updated Megavind webpage, newsletter on calls for funding, social media)

Target group: SMEs, OEMs and companies interested in working with research projects
