INNOPOLIS: 10 Knowledge Exchange best practices now available online

INNOPOLIS: 10 Knowledge Exchange best practices now available online
Added on 05/07/2011

INNOPOLIS aims to identify regional best policy practices in knowledge exchanges (KE) that have been realised between universities & enterprises. The INNOPOLIS project will develop a simulation & a user-friendly electronic repository of the project's key outputs, that can be used by regional authorities in transferring best policy practice, thus actively supporting knowledge co-creation between universities & enterprises.

In the frame of the first phase of the project, 10 successful knowledge exchange practices between universities & enterprises have been identified from the project’s participating regions: Manchester (UK), Helsinki (FI), Lodz (PL) and Central Macedonia (GR). The consortium focused on the multimedia presentation of those practices, which are now available online.

-Watch the 2 multimedia case studies from the region of Central Macedonia:

Ergobyte Informatics S.A. & the Informatics and Telematics Institute (CERTH)

The Knowledge exchange between Ergobyte Informatics S.A. & the Informatics and Telematics Institute (Centre of Research and Thechnology Hellas) was initiated in April 2009 and is still ongoing. The practice was about the integration of semantic technologies to an existing software. The excellent communication among the people involved and the availability of a pool of people with key talents have been noted as key factors for the success of the practice.

DOTSOFT S.A. & Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH)

The cooperation of DOTSOFT S.A. with the Laboratory of Atmospheric Physics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) emerged out of the University Lab’s need for an IT solution for the process, storage and online demonstration of a large amount of data generated by its specialised instruments. DOTSOFT S.A., having already cooperated with the lab in the past, took the initiative to propose the development of a solution. This knowledge exchange practice has strongly contributed to the establishment of the National Network for Monitoring of Solar UV Solar Radiation for Greece and Cyprus.
