EMPORIA4KT launches new Call for Researches

New mentoring programme is launched to support early-career, Blue Economy researchers in Europe to improve their innovation and technology transfer skills

The Blue Economy Technology Transfer Programme, organised and led by the EMPORIA4KT project, will provide researchers in France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom with the unique opportunity to gain vital Knowledge Transfer (KT) skills for their future careers in Blue Economy innovation.
Participants will learn how to direct Research and Development towards market, industry and public/private investment and also explore how to de-risk the Early Stage Technology (EST) development process and how to make EST more attractive to investment.
Participants will complete online workshops followed by a 9-month mentoring programme during which national teams of researchers will determine the best commercialisation routes for real case studies of EST in the Blue Economy.
The programme will conclude with a brokerage event in Brussels, where teams selected from earlier national events across the five participating countries will pitch their EST commercialisation plan to an audience of international Blue Economy expert stakeholders. One EST will be selected to receive additional funding for further proof-of-concept studies. The programme is open to early-career researchers who are working at a Higher Education Institution or Research Centre.

Deadline for applications: 16 October 2020
