Initially, all partners were invited to provide a status update on their respective tasks and project responsibilities. As Task Leader, Trondheim Tech Port shared results from the recently concluded EU-wide stakeholder survey which investigated the current state of innovation and research ecosystems. This included assessing three main areas, namely:

  • Access to Research & Innovation Infrastructure and Services
  • Policy Support and Governance Processes
  • Collaboration and Knowledge Transfer 

We look forward to sharing the final report with you in due course.
