Advantages of In-Kind Contributions
The advantages of In-Kind Contributions are many, to both the contributing partner and ESS alike. For instance, by being involved with In-Kind contributions, partners will have a chance to develop an exclusive know-how that can generate future value for the entire society. By creating a unique service or a product, ESS partners will establish themselves as pioneers in their respective fields.
The In-Kind Contributions will also offer a unique opportunity for national institutes and industries to participate in one of the greatest European Science projects to date. ESS presents a European joint effort, an extensive networking opportunity for institutes and industry alike. Benefits of networking capacities and know-how exchange opportunities of this magnitude are rarely to be found elsewhere on the European continent.
Finally, by participating in In-Kind Contributions, national industries and institutes will have a chance to grow further, fostering the economy of their regions in the process. The ESS on the other hand would benefit from acquiring the newest and most unique components, as well as the most skilled personnel for the project. This would result in an extensive innovation capacity building, which in turn would propel entrepreneurship forward.
