The All4R&D Platform is created as a result of the Erasmus+ project Promoting academia-industry alliances for R&D through collaborative and open innovation platform All4R&D, co-financed by the European Union.
This project activity addresses the priority to improve the knowledge triangle and accelerate innovation in B&H and Armenia. All project activities aim to increase the awareness on importance of cooperative research and ultimately academia-industry alliances, which will influence national innovativeness and competitiveness.
The aim of the All4R&D project is to accelerate research, innovation, knowledge and technology transfer in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Armenia through enhancing strategic academia-industry alliances. The specific project objectives are:
- To reinforce existing and to establish new university structures – Cooperative R&D Units together with industry; partners in the areas of knowledge creation and transfer, research and innovation, commercialisation of R&D results
- To develop a methodology for collaboration and open innovation and establish web based platform focusing on knowledge transfer, innovation and networking potential
- To test and review the model of collaboration between universities and companies through pilot projects
- To enhance career development and employability of students and alumni by offering new and innovative opportunities in research and education.
Our motivation was the understanding that when companies and universities work in tandem they can push the frontiers of knowledge, and become a powerful engine for innovation and economic growth.
