Fit 4 Innovation Innovation comes in many forms. Be it disruptive or incremental, innovation brings competitive advantages to SMEs and is crucial for their long-term sustainability. It creates value through the development of new products and services. However, SMEs often find it hard to devote time and effort to innovation activities and to grow and optimise their organisation. Here is where Fit 4 Innovation comes in and offers solutions. Improving the competitiveness of SMEs Fit 4 Innovation is a national programme aiming to improve the competitiveness of Luxembourg SMEs. It has three main objectives: increased sales, enhanced productivity and better client satisfaction in terms of quality and timing. The result is a considerable and measurable improvement of SMEs’ performance. These gains should, over time, make it possible for the companies to sustainably invest in innovation. 360-degree analysis and implementation of recommendations The programme is based on a 360-degree analysis of companies and their activities. This phase can last between 4 and 6 weeks (Phase 1: diagnostic). Ideally, the SMEs will then choose to start the second phase (Phase 2: project), which includes the implementation of the recommendations resulting from the diagnostic. This second phase can last between 6 and 24 months. Luxinnovation support Luxinnovation facilitates SME’s access to the programme and cooperates with organisational and change management experts. Luxinnovation plays the role of an intermediary between the companies and the experts and ensures the progress of the project as well as a return on investment of at least 100% for the companies. The Agency is available to help you complete your subsidy application.
