SME coaching in electronics

We help inventors and SME's with technical and commercial expertise in electronics, sensors, novel production techniques and miniaturisation.

Challenges for an SME

innovation in SME's - focus on the ball

We often interact with inventors and Small & Medium Entreprises, sometimes lacking the financial muscles to engage in technical product development.

Examples of FAQs are:

  • Can this be done?
  • How much will it cost to develop a prototype?
  • What materials could be used instead?
  • Who should we collaborate with?
  • Where can we find financing?
  • Is it wise to attempt to get R&D financing from Vinnova, EU or similar?
  • Should we keep it secret or reach out?
  • How can we find the right competence?

We have hands-on experience of all phases from idea to commercialisation, both technically and commercially.

The Printed Electronics Arena in Norrköping is an innovation cluster and one of RISE' many Test- and Demonstration facilities - a state of the art pilot line for hybrid electronics. Through a close collaboration between The Laboratory of Organic Electronics (Linköping University) and RISE, and in addition the Region Östergötland, Norrköping municipality and the incubator LEAD we get lots of requests to support and guide inventors, SME's and also from larger industrial clients where ideas spring to life.

In our toolbox you'll find innovation management, open innovation, immaterial rights (IP) handling, tech transfer, spin-offs, financing and in short guidance and answers to the same question: How do we move forward with our invention and company?

We have access to all expertise within RISE in SME-development including among other EEN ((Entreprise European Network, SME financing and networking).
