"I voted in favour of this report. The funding for SMEs from the Horizon 2020 research and development programme, notably under the Industrial Leadership Chapter, has been essentially increased, reaching EUR[nbsp ]287 million between 2014 and 2020 compared to the previous MFF. The trilogue outcome foresees greater synergies, increasing coordination and avoiding unnecessary duplication with international, national and regional research programmes. As research funding in the EU and Member States is still lagging behind, it is very important to ensure that any funding is being used reasonably and efficiently. The programme should meet the real needs of SMEs and keep a bottom-up nature, following a business-driven agenda, with its main focus on market potential. EU programmes have to meet reality and offer complementary means of achieving goals such as smart economy, creating jobs etc. One of the main obstacles for SMEs in using EU funding has been excessive bureaucracy. This decision aims to reduce both administrative bureaucracy and administrative costs. It outlines – in accordance with the aim of simplification – that administrative and bureaucratic burdens should be reduced for all parties. Double audits and excessive documentation and reports should be avoided."@et1
