This will include training a wider community of expert facilitators in higher education institutions across Europe. Apply until 29 March!
Piloting communities of expert facilitators to improve industry-academia-public sector co-creation (CSA)
The role of intermediaries, e.g., industry clusters, science and innovation parks which can provide a collaboration platform and facilitate co-creation is relevant in this context. Methodologies for improved industry-academia co-creation through expert facilitation offer possibilities for higher education institutions to better meet the needs for innovation from the industry, business side and public sector. The diverse pool of R&I talents at the higher education institutions across Europe constitutes a vast source for creativity which should be fully capitalized for innovation.
This action could explore complementarities with already existing instruments in the field of university-business cooperation, such as the EIT Knowledge Innovation Communities, EIT HEI Initiative, Erasmus+ Alliances for Innovation, European Skills Agenda and relevant national and regional activities.
This action should integrate appropriate Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) disciplines, with appropriate experts and/or partners, in order to produce outcomes enhancing its societal impact.
