The Knowledge Valorisation Platform connects players across the EU to share their best practices, knowledge and expertise in putting the excellent research results and data we produce in Europe into practical use.
This cooperation across borders fosters the results of research and innovation being transformed into sustainable products, processes and services that bring economic value and benefit society. The aim of the platform is to ultimately improve policies and enhance capacities and skills.
EU valorisation policy
Research and innovation will play a crucial role in this transition if excellent research results and data are quickly made available and put to practical use across Europe.
The Council has asked the Commission to develop a strategy to accelerate the potential uptake of research and innovation results and data.
This is why we need a new EU valorisation policy that involves all players.
Factsheet: Making results work for society
What does the policy aim to do?
Its goal is to increase the impact of research and innovation investment.
The policy involves all players and aims to ensure that data, research results and innovation are transformed into sustainable products, processes and services that bring economic value and benefit society.
How to ensure we fully exploit research results?
This policy review is the first milestone in the definition of a European knowledge valorisation strategy. It describes the different means at our disposal to
- improve how we transform research results into new sustainable solutions
- identify and analyse the main channels for the uptake of research and innovation results
- get better at spreading excellent national practices
- highlight best practices from Europe and beyond
Sharing knowledge and the uptake of research and innovation results by society is a key part of the Commission’s proposal to revitalise the European Research Area.
The survey report ‘Towards a Policy Dialogue and Exchange of Best Practices on Knowledge Valorisation' summarises feedback and comments from EU Member States and interested EEA countries on concrete areas for a policy dialogue and exchange of best practices. It also contains a collection of best practices by drawing on the expertise of the participating countries.
We have a created a platform for players across the EU to share their best practices in making the most of research results
Ongoing and planned action focuses on six main channels:
- Academia-industry joint research and mobility
- Research-driven spin-offs and startups
- Intermediaries and knowledge transfer
- Citizens and public bodies
- Intellectual property and standards
- Knowledge dissemination and policy uptake
