TETRAMAX Workshop on Transfer to Industry and Start-Ups during HiPeac18 conference

On Wednesday, Jan. 24, a workshop is organised at the HiPEAC conference in Manchester.

The workshop will focus on building dynamic economies that are based on the creative application of human knowledge is currently an aspiration of all around the world. As part of this effort, Europe has been investigating a lot of resources in different programs (e.g., FP7, ENIAC, ARTEMIS) to stimulate research and innovation. However, the impact of such programs on the overall European economy is still below the targets/expectations. For instance, the number of startups born from these programs remains still limited. This workshop aims at discussing means and ways to improve both the industry transfer as well as stimulating people to transfer their knowledge in business ideas and startups.

Therefore, the workshop focuses on two main topics:

• Transfer to industry: How can we improve the transfer of EU research results to industry? Are the exiting schemes and organization (Artemisia, Eniac, FP8) efficient and sufficient enough? What kind of research project organisations do we need? Etc.

• Start-ups: Why is the number of Start-ups in Europe not so high? ? When should one seriously consider going for start-up? What does it take to start a company? How do I start doing it? How can I optimize the risk of failing? Etc.
