5 Who is involved in the LMI: cooperation is key in obtaining fast implementation of the action plans
Member States: Ministries of Economic/ Science Affairs, European Council, Competitiveness Council Standardisation, public procurement and regulatory organisations. Stakeholders: business organisations, NGOs, trade unions, insurance companies, regional and local authorities, VC, European Technology Platforms etc. For each sector, there is a ‘contact/advisory’ group with strong industry participation Networks: EEN, industry/SME networks, cluster networks EC internal coordination: 15 different DGs, both sector and regulatory departments of the EC.

6 Question: How to optimise the use of our building blocks?
EEN has 3 activity modules and has established at least 6 Sector Groups in LMI sectors LMI focuses on 6 market sectors with a tailored action plan for each market

7 Links between LMI and EEN sector groups:
LMI task force Lead DG + task force leader INTELLIGENT ENERGY Renewable Energy DG TREN, Norela Constantinescu SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION Sustainable construction DG ENTR I5, Antonio Paparella HEALTHCARE eHealth, bio-based products DG INFSO, Michael Palmer TEXTILE Protective textiles DG ENTR G4, Outi Niiranen MATERIALS Bio-based products DG ENTR F5, Tomas Jonnson ENVIRONMENT/ Water & Waste management and air pollution Recycling DG ENV, Jakub Wejchert Sector group leaders and LMI task force leaders were contacted early October

8 Cooperation with EEN Sector groups on the basis of the 6 LMI action plans:
Develop activities in regions and countries that complement the LMI activities, ex. in public procurement, regulation, standardisation Ex: stimulating innovative public procurement by bringing together local procurers and high tech SMEs in the 6 LMI sectors Ex: asking SMEs about what local/regional legislation hampers their innovation programmes in these 6 sectors Providing intelligence about LMI-related measures in MS and regions
