|The FORNY2020 programme: proof-of-concept funding for 2016 I||Choose|
The primary objective of the FORNY2020 programme is to increase value creation by ensuring that R&D results from publicly-funded research institutions are brought to the market.
The programme supports the commercialisation of R&D results generated by researchers and students alike and will promote innovation within all disciplines and business areas as well as in both the public and social sectors. Results may have their origin in publicly-funded research institutions alone or in collaborative projects involving trade and industry.
The programme gives priority to three types of support: proof-of-concept funding; local funding for projects of TTOs; and measures to enhance structure and promote network-building and competence-building at TTOs.
Newly-established companies whose activities are wholly or partially based on intellectual property from publicly-funded research institutions and from Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) representing publicly-funded research institutions.
