Setting-up 5 Commercialisation Hubs
The Hubs will be merged with already existing centres at all 5 PCUs. This project will utilise the existing capacities to support the universities to reach more operative level which will contribute to the sustainability and further development of the R&D activities. After the status quo analysis is conducted, a strategy for each Hub will be developed by the joint efforts of the EU partners and Western Balkan universities. EU universities will analyse and present their methods, tools and best practices and the universities from the Western Balkans will analyse the situation in their country with regard to the knowledge transfer and commercialization of research.WUS Austria, the partner with profound knowledge in the area of technology transfer and the WB region, will act as a bridge between the ones and the others in order to adapt the EU models to the local conditions and needs.
