Internationalization of innovative business: practical examples and supporting policies, Gennady Pilnov, CEO, Russian Technology Transfer Network

Russian Technology Transfer Network (RTTN) is dedicated to technology transfer between the science sector and industry, as well as between different industries, and international collaboration. RTTN has experience in identifying and hands-on supporting of international innovative projects of Russian and European SMEs and R&D organisations.

The key barriers to internationalisation of innovative SMEs and R&D organisations are as follows:
• difficulties in communication (knowledge of foreign languages, e-mail communication, etc.);
• lack of sufficiently qualified personnel (with necessary experience and skills) for international projects / business;
• lack of visibility of Russian SMEs’ competences abroad (there is the need to promote them through networks, technological platforms and other tools);
• lack of co-financing for joint international (technical) projects;
• existence of differences in procedures of financing and implementation of projects;
• lack of adequate support for SMEs internationalisation (partner search, consulting, hands-on support, etc.)
In the presentation will be demonstrated RTTN experience to reduce these barriers by usuing such instruments as:
• The Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development – FP7 (2007-2013);
• Enterprise Europe Network & Gate2RuBIN project (2008-2013);
• ERA-NET projects - ERA-NET.RUS (2011-2012);
• International programme “Growth” of Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises - joint calls with France, Germany and Finland.
