TESIS (Technology Supported Innovation And E-Business in the Information Society) (TESIS)
Start date: Dec 31, 2002, End date: Dec 30, 2005 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This Irish-led project, lasting two and a half years, brings together ten partners from four Member States in a project whose objective is to assist SMEs in making better use of existing technologies to stimulate economic expansion. Significant investments have already been made in many EU Member States in the development of broadband telecommunication networks through the provision of fibre-optic cables to support the spatial planning strategies of each region. Nevertheless, these transnationally-linked networks are under utilised by SMEs so far. TESIS (Technology Supported 5 Innovation & E-Business in the Information Society) seeks to promote the potential of this technology for e-business and encourage SMEs to be more innovative in their utilisation for management, production and business activities. The project partners will work with SMEs through a four-stage planning and development process to assess individual needs, investigate transnational benchmarking and implement new technologies and e-strategies in the market place. The project is relevant to the development of the information society, and considers the transnational implications of company expansion strategies on spatial development in the NWE. Achievements: he overall impact and benefit of the project was directed at individual SMEs to assist them in their planning and development. The outcomes of the project include individual SME plans that are confidential to each of the SMEs and specific to their needs. Summaries of these plans have been made available as part of the project activity reports however the full contents are confidential and must remain so if the SMEs are to build on the development potential that has been planned.
