Innovation support for small and medium-sized enterprises

One of RISE’s most important tasks is to strengthen the competitiveness of small and medium-sized Swedish businesses (SMEs). Our focus is always on the needs of the individual company and we offer customised support and expertise irrespective of where on the development curve the company finds itself.

We are able to offer SMEs everything from technical solutions, skills development and commissioned research to evaluations of products or processes. We also have methods and services to support the innovative ability of the company.

We offer SMEs:

  • Access to RISE’s 2,700 experts and hundreds of test and demonstration environments
  • Guidance regarding SME-specific projects and offers
  • Tips and advice regarding funding opportunities
  • Quality-assured market access
  • Business networks
  • Customised training

Examples of SME-specific projects and networks include the Food Accelerator, Scale-up, the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), EU SME support initiatives and advice on CE labelling.


Through our regional hubs,we collaborate with regional stakeholders such as the IUC industrial development centre, Science Parks, Almi and higher education institutions.
