The 2nd Interregional Thematic Seminar of SPEED UP project took place in Tallinn on 7th June 2016.
The seminar was organized by the Tallinn Science Park Tehnopol. It discussed several good practices from six different EU countries in the field of cooperation between the local public authorities, business sector, universities and R&D centers to support business creation and development. Good Practices selected by the partners represent several ways to build bridges between public bodies, research institutions, universities and the private sector and foster a fluid exchange of information, ideas and technologies between these actors.
The seminar was open to local and regional policy makers, business incubators, entrepreneurship organizations and associations, universities, R&D centers, entrepreneurs and aspiring ones.
Soon after the seminar, project partners will organize meetings with local stakeholders to share with them lessons learned and choose the most appropriate practices to transfer and implement in their respective regions. The next SPEED UP event, taking place in September 2017 in Lisbon will be organized as a training workshop where some themes emerging from the good practices will be further deepened by the partners
