KARIM is the Knowledge Acceleration and Responsible Innovation Meta-network, aimed at facilitating knowledge transfer across North West Europe (NWE).
Europe’s future economic growth will have to come from innovation in products, services and business models; we need to be better at turning research into new and better services and products if we are to remain competitive in the global marketplace and improve the quality of life in Europe.
KARIM will enable to meet this goal. We are committed to sharing innovation and improving small and medium sized enterprises’ access to high value innovation support and technology in order to make NWE more competitive.
The KARIM project will be delivered by a consortium drawn from universities, innovation support agencies, regional and national agencies and, crucially, business representative organisations. By 2014 the project will have created a strategic network of more than 500 innovation actors and will provide a range of innovative yet practical offerings for all who share the vision of creating a more competitive Europe.
KARIM is an INTERREG IV B project (see more)
