The MC’s superordinated goal is increased competitiveness by means of enhanced innovative strength and the further development of key competences among partner companies. A central role in this undertaking is played by an intensification of the teamwork between partner companies and R&D bodies. Through active partnership in the network, companies receive early warning of the developments and trends that are set to shape the competitive situation and can thus enhance their competitiveness in co-operative form. Above all, this stepping up of inter-company co-operation furnishes small and medium-sized companies (SME) with opportunities for the exploitation of synergy and innovation potential.
