    This report has been produced as part of the FP7-funded research project INTRASME (Innovative Transport SME Support Action) which aims to improve the capacity and capability of European SMEs to develop and implement products more rapidly in the low carbon transportation sectors. This report presents results of work on how SMEs acquire new technologies and develop new products and services and the value SMEs get from participating in EU R&D Transport programmes, focusing on the barriers SMEs face in exploiting their innovations and how these can be overcome. The report identifies strategies associated with the successful commercialisation of technology, and produces recommendations for the European Commission on support for SMEs.
