#S66 Creation of a transnational ecosystem for promoting technology transfer and entrepreneurship in strategic sectors (CREATING)

Priority Area SME - Promote entrepreneurship and strengthen the growth of SMEs

The main aim of the proposal is to improve and increase entrepreneurial activities through the creation of an “entrepreneurship favourable ecosystem” and a Baltic Innovation Entrepreneurship Network (BIEN). The network will function as a catalyst, supporting and reinforcing interdependencies and links between the agents forming the ecosystem. BIEN will concentrate on providing much needed support for the exploitation of research results, e.g. at early stages. Based on the idea of open innovation, BIEN will coordinate activities of partner and external related organisations and provide support to SMEs and researchers for the commercial exploitation of research results.
