About the project
In today's world, knowledge generation and dissemination are impossible without higher education and research institutions. The knowledge transfer process is essential for HERIs to transfer their knowledge to SMEs, which can use it in their innovation processes. Yet, there are some barriers to this process and there is a need for policy interventions.
Knowledge transfer should be pursued as an evidence-based policy area, where decisions have to be based on data, monitoring, and evaluation. New technologies (AI, big data) empower policy analysts and decision-makers to make objective decisions. However, public funding and its effectiveness in promoting knowledge transfer are still not evaluated in this new context.
The project intends to bring HERIs, innovation agencies, business support organizations, policymakers and relevant organizations to support evidence-based knowledge transfer and science and business cooperation in the context of public funding efficiency and effectiveness.
