D6.2. Innovation Capacity Report.
RUN EU+. Regional University Network Plus
MetadataShow full item record
A key impact of the RUN-EU PLUS project is the development of inter-regional Research & Innovation (R&I) models designed to deliver on societal transformation requirements, within the framework of the relevant Smart Specialisation Strategies (RIS3) and the UN goals for Sustainable Development, and through increased integration of the university activities in the field of R&I within and beyond Europe. The RUN-EU Innovation Ecosystem will enhance industry academia engagement through research partners and Professional Practice-based Research Degree Programmes developed by the RUN-EU PLUS project. Innovations developed through these partnerships will be spun-out to our RUN-EU regions for optimum regional impact. This report outlines the development and implementation of an Innovation Detection System for the RUN European University designed to support innovators and the identification of innovations of exploitable potential among local or alliance-wide partnerships. Once detected, local partner interface services including technology transfer services, innovation support staff and start-up incubators will be applied to maximise knowledge transfer for societal impact. A RUN-EU Commercialisation Committee, previously presented in RUN-EU PLUS D6.1 Innovation Ecosystem, will support knowledge transfer to regional partners of the RUN European University via the European Innovation Hubs (EIHs). Three RUN-EU EIHs have been established in the areas of Future Sustainable Indutstries, Bioeconomy and Social Innovation, and these hubs function as cutting-edge knowledge networks which integrate education, research and innovation allowing regional stakeholders access to new or existing pan-European research or industrial infrastructuree, associated databases as well as new approaches to the establishment of co operation arrangements. The development and implementation of the RUN-EU PLUS Innovation Detection System has been led by the RUN-EU PLUS R&I Ambassadors network who lead research and innovation development locally in their own institution and across RUN-EU with the other actors/stakeholders of the RUN-EU innovation ecosystem
