Path: Services »  » Innovation


Innovation is crucial for the national and regional economy. We contribute to this theme from two angles. We are capable of accelerating the knowledge chain together with companies and knowledge institutions in ways that turn knowledge to profit. We draw up innovation policy roadmaps, or multi-annual programmes, for knowledge regions around Europe. In addition, we also develop action oriented project plans/business plans such as new shared research facilities, techno-starter housing or securing funding for innovation programmes with the national government or the EU.
