Shared Pilot Facilities (SPF) are open access test sites that bring bioeconomy innovations from the laboratory into industrial practice. They are open to all companies and research institutes, and can thus be seen as shared investments in innovation equipment. They have proven to be successful in helping innovators, especially SMEs, to bridge the so called Valley of Death, i.e. the innovation phase between laboratory and successful market introduction that comes with a high technological and financial risk.
 
SmartPilots aims to improve regional policies to provide support for Shared Pilot Facilities (SPF) and their users in a cost-effective and impact oriented manner. This will be done by:
·         Optimizing direct support for shared pilot facilities
·         Optimizing indirect support i.e. direct support for users of shared pilot facilities
·         Facilitating interregional cooperation between users and Shared Pilot Facilities.

This survey collects information for thorough analysis of availability and use of funding mechanisms for users of Shared Pilot Facilities for the bio-economy. The results of this survey will be used to improve funding mechanisms for users of SPF and to align them better to their actual needs.
