Marche Region is organising, in the framework of the project NEXT, the first Local Working Group targeting Universities and Centers for Research and Technology Transfer. The meeting will take plase on the 08th April 2014 in Ancona. The activities presented during the meeting aim at supporting Universitites and CRTT to build relationships with the local communities located in the Adriatic basin. The event will constitute an opportunity to learn about the project and the opportunities it provides to the CRTT sited in the Marche region; besides, it will be an important occasion for starting dialogue and gather feedback, expectations and needs from the innovation actors to which NEXT intends to respond. The objective of NEXT project (www.project-next.eu) is the set up of a collaborative platform that supports the ‘innovation and technology transfer in the countries of the Adriatic’, through the creation of :
• a virtual space of integration and cooperation (online platform) for sharing information and for access to common services for matching supply / demand for R & I in the leading sectors of the territories involved;
• an orientation for the design of strategies for projects development, provided to the actors involved (companies, universities, research centers) in order to integrate and capitalize knowledge and encourage the transfer of technology, particularly in the areas of specialization of the Adriatic –Ionian Region.
