South East England Innovation Relay Centre

Objective

The objectives of the proposed South East England IRC (SEEIRC) are: Promote the transnational transfer of technology in accordance with local needs. Stimulate the capacity of firms to adopt new technology. Promote the dissemination and exploitation of the results of Community research. Provide other key services that facilitate transnational technology transfer. Pursue possible synergies between the IRCs and the Innovating Regions in Europe (IRE) network. Develop new methods/measures to facilitate the deve lopment of the European Research Area. These will be realised through the execution of 9 work packages, covering the 3 key action lines, leading to the conclusion of 44 TTT agreements over the contract period. Three of the partners each have almost 7 year s experience of delivering IRC services in the Region, the fourth is responsible for the economic development of the region and will ensure that the IRC benefits from their wider regional initiatives. This will enable the IRC to form part of an integrate d set of services to industry while offering a seamless transition from the existing IRC to the new SEEIRC. Tasks within each work package are distributed across the SEEIRC consortium partners in accordance with their individual strengths and their distr ibuted locations across a large and congested region. This enables each to be a focus for companies and organisations in various areas within the Region. The differentiator between this proposal and existing IRC service delivery in the Region is based u pon provision of dedicated IRC services in a government defined region.
