The role of academic institutions in the innovation ecosystem.

The role of academic institutions in the innovation ecosystem.

05 May 2023

Olha Voropai, Academ.City project coordinator, took part in the workshop "Projects under the European Innovation Ecosystems Work Program in support of the New European Innovation Program", which took place in Brussels in early 2023.

44 projects from Horizon Europe's innovation ecosystem and scale-up programs presented their vision and plans for making the New European Innovation Agenda (NEIA) a reality. 

KAU has also joined this cohort of innovative entrepreneurial ecosystem players together with our partners - the Arctic University of Norway (Norway), the Technical University of Varna (Bulgaria), G-Force (Slovakia), EIT Raw Materials (Germany), Fastrack General Partner Ventures (Portugal) and Impact Hub (Austria). In 2023, the SEEDplus project, funded by the Horizon Europe program and aimed at strengthening entrepreneurial ecosystems, was launched.

Students, administrative and technical staff, as well as researchers are invited to reflect on the role of their academic institutions in the innovation ecosystem. The HEInnovate survey will guide you through the process of identifying, prioritizing and planning actions in eight key areas. The self-assessment is available in all EU languages.

The results will be used as part of the SEEDplus project (part of the CloudEARTHi Initiative).
