Mapping and Spotlight on Engineering Cluster Growth Needs

Growth Needs Analysis Synthesis Report

During the SME Cluster Growth project development phase it investigated the issues facing growth SMEs through a comprehensive set of expert and owner interviews, case studies and a major growth needs analysis survey.

This Growth Needs Analysis Synthesis Report distils and presents the main findings from this survey, research and interviews with groups of experts, SME representatives, entrepreneurs, and other relevant stakeholder groups. It shares insights and makes recommendations for forming the Cluster Growth Councils and shaping the Cluster Mobility and Training Programme.

Small to Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) growth is a hot topic with various policy-driven initiatives to support ‘scale-ups’ having been initiated globally.

This is the inspiration for our SME Cluster Growth project, which investigated the regional-growth needs within our partner’s regions. The result of the intensive review highlights both strengths and weaknesses that exist in the seven regions for supporting SME growth. The regional growth needs analysis reports feed into the development of cluster specific modules, being developed by partners as part of the mobility and the training programme.
