Innovation with SMEs

We have a wealth of knowledge and experience in our consultants, including evaluation and development of innovation capabilities and skills, knowledge transfer, network and partnership development and management, mentoring, business transformation and process improvement.

There is €78.5M of 2016-17 EU Funding available for Innovation in SMEs.

Innovate UK funding is available for Innovation in SMEs.

Best of the Best

Since 1998, we have worked on Innovation projects with a very wide range of SMEs, on: research; developing strategies; project development; funding applications, and Project Management.

Because we also specialise in Project Management and Monitoring & Evaluation, we understand how to develop projects which must be managed, monitored and evaluated effectively. This thorough approach may have contributed to the recent success of one of our projects being awarded the best of the best LIFE Environmental projects - the first UK project ever to do so.

Our Experience:

RDJ Consultants is a co-operative network, with extensive experience especially in the fields of Innovation with SMEs. A key element of RDJ Consultants' work over many years has been developing and co-ordinating effective Public/ Private Sector Partnerships for project funding.
