ABSTRACT
The so-called Valley of Death is the stage in the technology transfer process where pilot or demonstration scale activities are required. It is believed that most ideas “perish” here and never reach a further development due to the high risk - high cost of the activities that are required at this stage. Others ideas are abandoned or just never enter demonstration stage due to their irrelevance for the current market. This does not apply to entrepreneurial and start-up cases only, but it is generally valid for the transfer of academic research results to fruition by society.
During his talk, Maurizio will give examples of specific funding instruments and initiatives which are available to facilitate the process of “demonstration in relevant environment”. Furthermore, aspects that favour the interaction between academic research and industrial needs will be discussed.
