Boosting technology transfer for a sustainable industry
This project aims to promote transfer of scientific and technological know-how to the national industrial ecosystem in areas of Nanotechnology, Advanced Materials and Smart Systems, enabling a Sustainable and Intelligent Digital transformation as established by European Green Deal targets. A set of initiatives and actions of demonstration, dissemination and valorization of Research & Development results and their economic exploitation by companies, were outlined, to stimulate demand by traditional industries for technological solutions that can leverage the development of added-value products/processes and place national industries in more competitive markets.
The project target areas are related with Energy, Transport, Industry and Research and Innovation, which are encompassed in a set of eight actions on the European Green Deal, with the aim of improving the “well-being and health of citizens and future generations by providing, among other benefits, “renovated energy efficient buildings, cleaner energy and cutting-edge clean technological innovation, longer lasting products that can be repaired, recycled and re-used, and a globally competitive and resilient industry”.
To achieve the goals of the European Green Deal, it will be essential to mobilize the research and foster disruptive innovation, significantly increasing the implementation and demonstration, at large scale, of new technologies and sustainable solutions in all sectors and single market, thus creating new innovative value chains and economic value through offering added-value products or services (based on European Green Deal).
1. To promote the development of diagnosis and technology surveillance activities of technological and knowledge transfer case studies, aiming the identification, characterization and leverage of base knowledge for value proposals, and the optimization of the sharing information process to promote cooperation between companies and technological and scientific entities, stating their context, competences and mission;
2. To promote the development of products and services by introducing, in the production cycle, methodologies, materials and technologies of specialised development focusing on sustainability, ‘smartization”, and intelligent digital transformation. The purpose is to foster technological and digital transition and the competitiveness of traditional products and sectors;
3. To promote the development of value-added products in fundamental areas, namely related with Energy, Transport, and Industry, seeking for sustainable solutions, enhancement of products life cycle, and increase of industrial competitiveness and resilience.
