Sharing Strategies for European Research and Innovation Infrastructures
The goal of INNO INFRA SHARE is to improve the accessibility and exploitation – also at the interregional level - of local Research and Innovation infrastructures (RII) by SMEs. RIIs have the potential to serve as enablers of competitiveness and growth for local SMEs and foreign users, especially in the areas of Key Enabling Technologies (KETs).
To unleash this potential, Project partners will jointly work towards adding a market-driven dimension to the research and technology one, by networking and promoting collaboration opportunities at the regional and international level and by addressing RIIs relevant national and regional policy instruments. The partnership covers 8 European regions from Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Latvia, Estonia, Czech Republic and Sweden, with common Smart Specialization priorities.
During the 4 years of the project (jan 2017- dec 2020) artners will undertake a joint learning and collaboration process, involving regional and national stakeholders, that will contribute to the design and implementation of 8 Action plans in their respective territories to improve policy instruments that affect RII and their accessibility to industry.
