Knowledge Intensive Services in the Planning, Installation, Maintenance and Scrap services

Challenge: Renewable energy installations require knowledge intensive services throughout their life-cycle for planning, installing, maintaining and scrapping.

Solution: KIS-PIMS supported the emergence of a wide range of renewable energy services by designing and implementing new funding schemes for innovative service companies, with a focus on SMEs in Austria, France and Finland. Partners developed an innovation voucher for buying consulting services to strengthen business plans for innovations.

Duration: February 2008 – January 2011
