The overall aim of the SECURE-R2I project is to reinforce cooperation with Eastern Partnership Countries (EPC) on bridging the gap between research and innovation for Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 7 “Secure Societies”. The research domains encompassed by “Secure Societies” are broad and include ICT; Security; Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials (NMP); and Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). These research domains also form the basis of important economic sectors in the EPC, with many potential benefits for the EU, but which also need European support to increase their exploitation. Addressing this issue, the SECURE-R2I project will assist R&D and innovation (RDI) organisations in EPC via a range of knowledge and technology transfer activities with the support of European specialists. The activities include:

Networking between EPC organisations involved in RDI for Societal Challenge 7: It consists in mapping EPC RDI organisations and organising brokerage events to stimulate cooperation;
Analysing the tech transfer opportunities and bottlenecks of EPC organisations involved in RDI for Societal Challenge 7: It consists in surveying these organisations and holding discussions with representatives of government, industry, government and intermediary bodies;
Exchanging best practices in knowledge/technology transfer via a range of specific training courses and intensive summer schools in Europe;
Twinning via Research to Innovation (R2I) pilot projects: Each EPC research partner in the consortium will twin with another consortium partner who will support them to implement a bilateral R2I pilot project;

Providing innovation support services to selected, high-potential EPC (and European) RDI: The activities will consist in coaching and advisory services on innovation and tech-transfer.

 

 

This year’s TII summer school took place under the aegis of the EU-funded SECURE-R2I project, which attracted 26 participants from 9 countries. The majority of the participants originated from the project partner organisations based in Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine with additional attendees from Croatia, Finland, Luxembourg and Spain.  The week-long training course focusing on different aspects associated with the commercialisation of research results was delivered by seasoned TII members and hosted by Tallinn University of Technology at its Mektory building (Modern Estonian Knowledge Transfer Organisation For You).

 

The overall aim of the SECURE-R2I project is to reinforce cooperation with Eastern Partnership Countries (EPC) on bridging the gap between research and innovation for Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 7 “Secure Societies”.  One of its components is a programme of capacity building events, led by TII, which aims to initiate scientists and research administrators in the target EPC on how to prepare their most promising research results for uptake by industry.
