02/02/2018

On 25 January, CIT UPC took part in the ‘University to Industry Technology Transfer’ workshop, organised by Bax & Company and Innoget. The aim of this practical session was to improve the functioning of platforms for open innovation and online technology and knowledge transfer. The workshop is part of Pilot 7 (Online Knowledge Marketplaces), of the eight that comprise Science2Society (S2S), a European Project whose aim is to improve the efficiency of the European innovation system by drawing up good practices on technology transfer, generating and disseminating information for stakeholders so that they can improve their processes. CIT UPC has contributed considerably to S2S by leading Pilot 2 on Co-location (Establishing industry innovation labs within universities).

During the workshop, the Design Thinking method and an in-depth analysis of the Innoget tool (the Open Innovation Marketplace) will be used to explore improvements that could optimize these kinds of platforms.

S2S is comprised of 18 members including major companies such as FIATAtos or CA Technologies, and leading European research entities such as KU Leuven, Karlsruhe Institute of TechnologyAalto University or Fraunhofer.
