PNO received a request from a student. Currently, he is investigating whether participating in European public funding for chemical firms is an additional means for sensing of network resources from external partners and new opportunities that were previously out or not in primary focus of the firm’s sight. Furthermore, he is investigating which variables support or inhibit the development of a firm’s sensing capability. Experience showed that the survey takes 10-15 minutes of your time. We would appreciate your help and thank you for your collaboration.
