VIADUCT (Valorising Public Research to Drive Technology Transfer and Commercialisation through the Creation of Spin-offs) aims to promote the creation and development of technology-based spin-offs. The project focuses on smart specialization strategies and addresses key barriers related to the establishment and growth of spin-offs by enhancing policy instruments.
The project employs an inter-regional cooperation model that includes Europe’s premier association of Knowledge Transfer professionals, ASTP, as an advisory partner. Additionally, the project involves seven partners from seven regions across seven European countries, ensuring a balanced representation of both advanced and less advanced regions.
The project’s inter-regional exchange and learning activities encompass a range of initiatives. These include inter-regional thematic workshops, study visits, regional reports, inter-regional analyses, and regional stakeholder meetings. These activities aim to facilitate the improvement of policy instruments, thereby ensuring a successful process of knowledge transfer via spin-offs. This will aid in both the creation and long-term survival of these spin-offs.
|Project Duration: 01.03.2023 - 31.05.2027|
|Funded By: Interreg Europe|
|Project Coordinator: University of Zaragoza|
|Partners: Western Development Commission, University of Zaragoza, West Regional Development Agency, SATT Conectus Alsace, Kaunas Science and Technology Park, Public Institution, Municipality of Pieve di Soligo, Council of Tampere Region, ASTP|
The ultimate goal of VIADUCT is to facilitate a successful process of knowledge transfer through spin-offs, aiding their creation and survival. The project will produce a Roadmap Definition to Policy Learning, aimed at improving policy instruments in this domain.
The lead project partner for VIADUCT is the University of Zaragoza.
