Ważnym beneficjentem środków UE wspierających rozwój konkurencyjności opartej na innowacji są firmy sektora MŚP, zróżnicowane zarówno pod względem rodzaju działalności, jak i otoczenia konkurencyjnego. Obecnie Agencje Rozwoju Regionalnego oraz Innowacji poszczególnych krajów, regionów UE i państw stowarzyszonych podejmują decyzje o rodzaju i skali udzielanego wsparcia firmom MŚP w oparciu o niejednorodne zasoby danych, wykorzystując odmienne kryteria segmentacji MŚP. Celem artykułu jest uzasadnienie konieczności i technicznych możliwości stworzenia, w oparciu o zasoby informacyjne (bazy danych) Agencji Rozwoju Regionalnego, koherentnego i inteligentnego narzędzia do segmentacji MŚP, które pozwoliłoby nie tylko na monitorowanie udzielanego wsparcia, ale też na uczynienie regionalnego wsparcia bardziej efektywnym (beneficjentem wsparcia byłyby rzeczywiste innowacyjne przedsiębiorstwa). Przeprowadzono analizę metod segmentacji MŚP stosowanych obecnie w Agencjach Rozwoju Regionalnego przez 18 regionów europejskich i stowarzyszonych. W konsekwencji porównano podejścia stosowane do segmentacji MŚP przez 15 krajów oraz Komisję Europejską. Dane do analiz pozyskano metodą sondażu (ankieta online) z Agencji Rozwoju Regionalnego oraz Komisji Europejskiej.

The important beneficiaries of the EU funding that support the development of competitiveness based on innovation are Small and Medium Size Companies (SMEs). Their profiles may vary with respect to the type of business and the competitive environment. Currently, Regional Development and Innovation Agencies operating in the regions of the EU and in associated countries decide about the type and scale of financial support provided to SMEs on the basis of heterogeneous data resources, applying different SME segmentation criteria. The purpose of this article is to justify the necessity and technical possibilities of creating a coherent and intelligent tool for the segmentation of Small and Medium Size Companies, with the support of Regional Development Agency databases. This would allow to monitor the process of providing regional companies with innovative support and would increase the effectiveness of this support (the beneficiaries of the support would be the companies working most effectively on innovations). The analysis of the SME segmentation methods currently used in 18 different European Regional Development Agencies and associated regions was carried out. Furthermore, the approaches to SME segmentation in 15 countries and the European Commission were compared.(original abstract)
