All MANUNET projects should be designed on the following principle:
- Consortia must comprise at least 2 separate legal entities belonging to 2 participating countries.
- Consortia must include at least 2 independent SMEs which can belong to the same country/region.
- Large companies, academic research groups, universities or other public organisations may also participate according to their regional/national financing regulations, as long as there are 2 independent SMEs.
- The composition of the consortium should be efficient in size in order to accomplish the objectives proposed. However, we expect small medium projects with no more than 4 or 5 partners
