A new phenomenon is emerging the last years in the innovation management. Large enterprises adopting actively the paradigm of open innovation are joining forces with organisations from the wider public sector (such as universities, regional agencies) with the aim of upgrading the innovation capabilities of SMEs. The Symposium will offer insights into the practices of these partnerships following the research of over 40 relevant programmes across Europe. The symposium will review schemes like:
- Syntens a Dutch public agency that works with Shell to deliver the LiveWIRE international project supporting technically innovative entrepreneurs.
- IMEC a Belgium headquartered organisation conducting world-leading research in nanoelectronics via a partnership-
- ESA Business Incubation Centres who provide technical expertise and business-development support to start-up companies
The Symposium will be an opportunity to hear the experiences of public-private partnership innovation programmes on the challenges they faced and approaches they are following.
