Accelerating Innovation

24 June 2022

On June 27 at FBK, the event dedicated to tales of collaborations between industry and research in the field of cutting-edge technologies

Technology transfer, Key Enabling Technologies, Technology Readiness Level, Prototypes, Proof-of-Concept, Open Facility, Intellectual Property: today, they are sort of recurring “hashtags”, that we find both if we are in a research institution or university, or in industries with high innovation potential: wherever, in short, we seek to raise the level of innovation and with it the development of products and services with high added value, e.g. the use of micro- and nanotechnologies in the IoT, Quantum, and automotive fields.

Why is it so important for these concepts to materialise positively in collaborations between research institutes and companies? What are the ‘alternative priorities’ that may or may not make these collaborations fruitful? How important is it for a company to invest in innovation?

The day will include the presentation of four very different collaboration experiences, both in terms of subject area and type, and a round table in which the role of research in innovation as a facilitator for access to enabling technologies will be discussed by comparing the different experiences.

The event is promoted by the Nano-Region and IPCEI projects and will be available in person and remotely, upon registration.
