IT is more than implementing one system For transition issues, awareness & info programs are not effective. More can be expected from programs : - that improve the overall skills, - schemes that allow researchers and students to work with SMEs, - and programs that provide financial support for SMEs to hire consultants that work closely with individual SMEs and business partners.
