WP 8 concerns coordination, support and networking activities with the objective to support the transfer of LEAPS skills, technology and know-how towards industry and the economy. The goals include consortium-wide efforts for the LEAPS-INNOV technology developments, and looking further ahead by distilling a longer-term strategy for industry engagement with LEAPS acting as the “innovation engine”.
This will be tackled by:
Boosting trans-LEAPS links to exploit the critical mass of LEAPS towards industry
Supporting the LEAPS-INNOV technology work packages and working with the WP9 co-creation pilot studies in intellectual property, industrial collaboration and exploitation of results
Supporting the RI Open Innovation Coordination Group towards industry beyond the LEAPS light sources
Providing a dedicated SME access system to exploit the LEAPS facilities, labs, skills and expertise
Building bridges towards industry in its role as user, collaborator and supplier.
