Topic

University research parks, business incubators, accelerators and technology transfer hubs are novel Research & Innovation providers that contribute to advancing entrepreneurship all over the world. However, it is widely recognized that innovators often struggle to scale up, as many of them find it difficult to reach people and develop strategic partnerships, especially in those areas facing specific socio-economic and environmental challenges, such as the Alpine region.
Networks are crucial tools to cut down the costs of innovation, as they facilitate the coordination of R&I activities, the access to new markets and technologies, the pooling of complementary knowledge and experience in order to boost lean and process innovation.
Since its establishment, the Alpine Macro-Region – represented by EUSALP Members – has been addressing important R&I priorities in the name of EU territorial cooperation and regional cohesion, with the aim to tackle common challenges and enhance competitiveness. Hence, the creation of a EUSALP-wide network of R&I clusters gathering businesses, labs and knowledge institutions is key to foster a more agile and dynamic innovation strategy, while capitalizing on existing infrastructures and resources.
The exchange of experiences, innovation-based solutions and technical expertise among different geographical areas, and between private and public actors, will enhance an effective network of collaboration. Furthermore, it will encourage and support research centers to move from basic to “applied” research, able to deliver innovative products and services, especially in the digital sector, which is changing the business landscape at an impressive speed.
