How to develop industrially relevant ideas and transfer them outside of the Research Infrastructures (RIs)? How to overcome their legal, Intellectual property (IP) and finance- related challenges at the implementation stage? How to shape those ideas to make them attractive for the industrial market?  These questions and other will be discussed at the ACCELERATE workshop organised by ESS in 07-08 March in Lund.

The events will bring together ACCELERATE project partners working on Work Package 3 and their related partner facilities. This includes Technology Transfer officers and researchers with ideas which can be transferred to the market.

Moreover, representatives from technical, legal, innovation & business support organisations will also participate at the event.

The objective of the workshop is to:

  • help participants in developing their ideas in a practical way,
  • train them on pitching their ideas to industry,
  • discuss the various challenges which could be faced,
  • support them in defining the implementation stages,
  • network with the industry representatives and explore potential future opportunities.

The best idea will be selected by the innovation committee that will attend the event, and it will be promoted to industry.

The program and the registration page of the workshop can be found here.
