This action will pilot communities of expert facilitators for increasing knowledge exchange and co-creation between industry, academia and public sector and help matching the supply and demand for innovation.
There is a clear need to improve industry-academia interactions in Europe and enhance knowledge valorisation in innovation ecosystems. The role of intermediaries, e.g. industry clusters, science and innovation parks which can provide a collaboration platform and facilitate co-creation is relevant in this context. Methodologies for improved industry-academia co-creation through expert facilitation offer possibilities for higher education institutions to better meet the needs for innovation from the industry, business side and public sector. The diverse pool of R&I talents at the higher education institutions across Europe constitutes a vast source for creativity which should be fully capitalised for innovation.
This action will link professionals in industry-academia-public sector collaboration, build communities of expert facilitators for industry-academia co-creation and disseminate best practices and know-how for demand-driven industry-academia collaboration across Europe. This will include training a wider community of expert facilitators in higher education institutions across Europe.
This action should integrate appropriate Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) disciplines, with appropriate experts and/or partners, in order to produce outcomes enhancing its societal impact. Particular attention should be paid to promoting gender-responsive and inclusive research and innovation outputs.
This action could also explore complementarities with already existing instruments in the field of university-business cooperation, such as the EIT Knowledge Innovation Communities, EIT HEI Initiative, Erasmus+ Alliances for Innovation, European Skills Agenda and relevant national and regional activities.
