InnoCore - Core Technologies for Education and Innovation in Life Sciences (InnoCore)
We aim to propose a Strategic Partnership that group together academy, companies and industrial facilitators (i.e. incubators and/or accelerators) to raise the technical and entrepreneurial skills of students and research & innovation staff within knowledge-intensive course programs in the field of life science.
The project wants to address this challenge valorising Core Facilities as a mean for academy-industry collaboration and through blended education and project based collaborations. Our overarching aim could be delivered by:
- The development of joint courses and modules targeting students, young researchers and CF staff to boost entrepreneurial culture and knowledge transfer practices through the exploitation of core facilities;
- The integration of a project based transnational collaboration involving both academy and companies in programmes for cross-sectoral mobility and blended education;
- The intra- and inter regional cooperation to deliver innovative qualification to students, academic research and innovation staff, and companies staff as well.
Through this programme the project will develop education and training opportunities i) for students and young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) that will impact their employability also beyond the academic career, ii) for core facilities staff who will have the double chance to learn how to facilitate knowledge transfer and to become learners for next generation of knowledge workers.
