Important web portal of reference related to innovation, the Knowledge Valorisation Platform’s main objective is to connect public and private actors in the various EU member countries, to facilitate the sharing of knowledge, experiences and best practices able to transform theory into practice, to create sustainable products, processes and services with a positive economic impact.
For U4I Foundation, this is a further opportunity for international visibility and an important stimulus in view of the opening the IPF 2022 call.
What is IPF: IPF is the call that finances research, in any disciplinary field, providing funding to support innovative ideas with the aim of promoting the technological maturity, enhance them with the most appropriate form of legal protection, bring them closer to the market through technology transfer actions such as licensing and / or creation of spin off, and bring them to the attention of possible investors.
In 3 years the IPF call has funded 12 projects, for a total amount of 750 thousand euros.
