Researchers tend to collaborate with industry in order to advance their science rather than to commercialise results. IIS La Fe aims to support SEM contributing to change this paradigm in order to bridge the gap between research, innovation and competiveness under a quality assurance framework. In order to collaborate with SME we cover the whole innovation cycle from ide to market in regards of diagnostic tools, drug/product development and medical devices.
Under the general idea of upgrading the Enterprise Europe Network to support the objectives of Horizon2020, the IIS La Fe has a large experience in Themes of the Cooperation Programme, the FP7 “Research for the benefit of SME” scheme or the Eurostars Joint Programme. At present we have several projects on going where IIS La Fe collaborates on improving the innovation potential of SMEs.
