To facilitate the transnational cooperation between SMEs and Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) and to improve the access of Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) for SMEs, eight KETGATE Points have been established in Central Europe. Five KETGATE Points are linked to Business Support Organisations, three to RTOs. All organisations are experienced in technology transfer for many years and are important stakeholders in their regions.
