EcoWeb a dynamic e-dissemination platform for EU eco-innovation research results

Objective

Europe has a leading position in eco-innovation patents and emerging technologies. Although the EU achieves a remarkably high annual growth rate of 16% in eco-innovation, transfer to SMEs is rather low. Technology transfer to SMEs would be important to reduce EU’s industrial pollution. According to OECD and EC reports, awareness for RTD results is low. There is a need to increase technology transfer at the EU level.
A common platform at the European level will speed up promotion and transfer of existing technologies. The platform will focus on Framework Programmes results and other EC funding initiatives.
In the proposed project, it will be developed a dynamic platform (EcoWeb) for enterprises, especially SMEs, to take up eco-innovation results from EU funded research. This will increase uptake of novel technologies, spur economic growth, and will result in an increase of SME interest in the FP.
EcoWeb will bring companies close to relevant eco-innovation EU results through semantic-web-technology and existing eco-innovation networks and multipliers. Based on semantic-web-technology EcoWeb will collect and structure information whilst multipliers will disseminate results through existing channels. In particular EcoWeb will achieve:
• collect and structure RTD results on eco-innovation;
• match innovations to the technical needs of the SMEs.
• bring innovations to SMEs instead of having the SMEs looking for them.
