8. F-A5a, Promotion of innovative ecosystems

Description of the action

This action is aimed at fitting the identified innovative ecosystems into UdG and UIB and in its respective environments, which have different but complementary theme approaches. The first one is integrated by UdG, the Science and Technology Park, ICRA, the Costa Brava Consortium, the Blanes (CSIC) and Banyuls (Paris University VI, part of PRES-PM) research centres and a rich business network, with companies in the industrial and services sectors and all related to water. The second one includes UIB, two mixed UIB-CSIC institutes, the ParcBit, the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO) centre in the Balearic Islands and the main businesses in the country’s tourism sector, as well as emblematic projects like the recovery of the Playa de Palma beach. Both of them offer enough uniqueness and potential to be placed among the best university and innovation units in Spain. In recent years, the universities which are part of CEI-PM have developed several actions aimed at dynamizing and strengthening this innovation system. These actions have highlighted the need to reinforce some critical aspects: providing research centres with a business approach and introducing development financial tools in them, and translating and writing the results of basic research so that they can be assimilable by the companies in the area where each of them is located.

In addition, this action aims at providing research groups with a potential to tranfer qualified staff in order to boost its relations with businesses and implement the innovative role of research assistant, which would be part of research groups and institutes and would give suport in organising the technological offer, detecting the potential market, preparing projects, etc. On the other hand, in 2008, the UIB RESET programme was created so as to set up technology-based businesses and promote entrepreneurial spirit. In this context, a valuation fund will be created for technology transfer and business setting up (seed capital). Finally, this action is also aimed at offering advice services, studies and strategic plan implementation and also at increasing expert and counsultant support.
