Strategy for the IPR development and Action Programme

Strategy for the IPR development and Action Programme

  • This task deals with the need to inject within MIGAL, appropriate knowledge in the management of research results, especially when this relates to pathways to innovation and joint actions with industry. At the moment such capacities are not sufficiently present within MIGAL and not up to the challenges of a strongly globalised innovation market. To tackle this issue, a significant Innovation Capacities Upgrade programme is devised, taking the form of three rounds of training targeting either top-research profiles or management figures within MIGAL. The training will be implemented by experts from the Partnering Organisations and by external experts to be identified based on their specialisation in innovation processes and valorisation of knowledge.
  • Innovation, IPR & Exploitation Strategy: Intends to transfer part of improved innovation management on to other complementary players such as other universities, technical schools or research centres and in particular SMEs, in view of developing strong links and mutual cooperation with local entrepreneurship. The main objective will be to foster a business climate which promotes the production, dissemination and use of new knowledge by CEREHA's spin-offs and businesses around it. In order to create efficient regional innovation systems (based on the previous RIS and FORESIGHT projects), economic, social and political actors will be brought into contact with the EU leading edge of technology and business practice, beyond the national or regional levels. A report on the outlines of the Action Programme will be submitted. [month 24]

  • Innovation, IPR & Exploitation Strategy: Whereas a “sustainability” dimension is embedded in the project and permeates all activities within CEREHA, the last year of the project will devote substantial efforts to structure a coherent and sustainable Action Plan, the mission of which is to ensure that CEREHA can continue and develop its activities on the basis of its reinforced research capacity and consolidated relations with industry. The planned Action Programme places special importance on the coordinating role of the CEREHA partners, and especially on MIGAL's researchers in the development of a programme to upgrade the Galilee region's economic development in the sector of Biotechnology for the third age.
