On 13 July, the Policy Learning Platform is organising an online discussion on the topic of innovation vouchers.
Innovation vouchers are small lines of credit (usually ranging from €2000 to €20,000) provided by regional or national governments to Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to purchase services from knowledge providers such as universities, research centres, or consulting firms with a view to introducing new products, processes, or services in their business operations.
This online discussion will focus on the implications of innovation vouchers on research and innovation and their use to foster greater university-industry collaboration.
What you can expect
- Exchanging experiences and discuss about the concept of innovation vouchers and their uses for university-industry collaboration.
- Presentation of several good practices from selected Interreg Europe projects
- EURADA will share their experience with innovation vouchers
This event is on invite only. The key learnings will be made available afterwards in a follow-up article.
