WP3 - Enhancing EU-EaP research and innovation partnership


This WP will strengthen the links between EU and EaP innovation actors. Active innovation players will be identified via international co-patent analysis, demonstrating the involvement of EaP organisations in different types of EU and EaP innovation knowledge networks. Training of technology managers will be provided, as well as activities aiming at strengthening clusters in EaP countries in collaboration with similar structrures in EU. Last but not least, promotion of the ETPs concept will be done by transferring the experience and creating links between the existing Ukrainian platforms and the ETPs and by sharing and transferring experience to other EaP countries.
