Professor Michael Grimm is a Principal lnvestigator in the Cyber<>lnstitutions research area. Here is his contribution:

'The focus is on small and medium enterprises in developing countries that have limited or no access to capital, consultancy services or any other form of professional support. The central question is how networks can be established that link these firms with each other, but also with investors, banks, government institutions and other actors – both within their own countries and abroad. Ultimately, the aim is to reduce information asymmetries and to reduce existing market segmentations.'

Why he participates in Cyber<>Spaces:

'I am involved because  I plan to further develop my research together with colleagues from other disciplines, which may allow for expansion towards entirely new research areas.'
