Abstract: This ECSCW workshop draws attention to research and development projects (R&D) that deal with cooperative and collaborative practices in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). European companies are for the most part SMEs: nine out of every ten companies can be defined as an SME (Eurostat 2015). They cover a huge variety of branches and fields, including diverse examples such as manufacturing, construction or IT start-ups, and meanwhile, there is again a growing sphere of CSCW projects that recognize the importance of this field. The empirical methods applied in such SME centered projects include qualitative methods with participant observation, interviewing or conducting co-design workshops, but also quantitative methods like the use of questionnaires or eye-tracking systems. In the workshop, we open up for sharing and reflecting experiences of doing research in SMEs and for discussing the characteristics and challenges of this (old and new) field in CSCW.
