Improving Research and Innovation Infrastructure Performance: from Fragmented to Integrated and Sustainable Cooperation

Within higher education institutions (HEIs) and their research and innovation infrastructure (RII) lies a great potential to act as a key stakeholder for regional innovation development. InnoHEIs project identifies four main directions that should be taken to exploit the potential: fostering entrepreneurship and creativity in regions; enhancing HEIs’ role as an enabler of the entrepreneurship discovery process (EDP); integrating entrepreneurial knowledge; removing barriers and enhancing collaboration.

The project aims at enlarging the role of higher education institutions and their research and innovation infrastructure as key stakeholders for regional innovation development.

The InnoHEIs project seeks to create the favourable environment aiming to improve the usage and employment of innovation infrastructure through better involvement of its users and customers and enhanced science, industry, and public collaboration. Partners will collaborate seeking to improve performance HEIs’ RII responding to the regional needs and demand using co-creation methods, demand, and user-driven, open innovation approaches to solve regional societal challenges.
