CADIC - FP7 THEME: Research for the benefit of SMEs/ SME Associations

With a growing need for SMEs in Europe to engage and collaborate in networks and clusters,  the European research project Cross-Organisational Assessment and Development of Intellectual Capital (CADIC) will help a large number of SMEs to set up and strengthen own clusters and engage in existing and suitable clusters on a much easier and more cost-efficient basis. CADIC Benchmarking system enables SMEs to compare their own intangible resource base with other organisations in order to find suitable partners to collaborate and manage value-adding IC flows in SME-clusters. The CADIC framework provides methods and tools to support IC-based collaboration between SMEs, including a training programme for the roles “Cluster Facilitation”. http://www.lml.lse.ac.uk/cadic/page1/page1.html
