The type of high-risk/high-gain research at the frontiers of knowledge that the ERC promotes often generates unexpected or new opportunities for commercial and societal applications. The ERC is committed to ensure the full exploitation of the excellent, useful ideas it funds. The Proof of Concept funding helps ERC grant-holders bridge the gap between their research and the earliest stage of a marketable innovation.

 

VALUNI 2015 aims to encourage action plans of marketing units to promote technology commercialization via the licensing of patents and/or creation of technology-based companies. Furthermore, it seeks to strengthen technology projects and marketing activities in order to ensure effective technology transfer to the productive sector. The Innovation Department was granted this funding for the project INNOVal 2015.
