CENTRAL ITALY INNOVATION RELAY CENTRE

Objective

CIRCE will provide cost effective services and qualified support to SMEs and research centres of Latium, Abruzzi and Sardinia in the fields of transnational technology transfer, and more in general, in all matters concerning Innovation. In regions where investment in research and innovation is slowly increasing and the industrial framework is characterised mostly by small traditional enterprises not yet completely innovation oriented and with scarce attitude of working transnationally, CIRCE, within the IRC Network and together with other local innovation key players, has the important role of improving and creating a friendly and homogeneous innovation environment by stimulating a better integration between the world of research and industries and by encouraging local companies to work with European ones.

To reach these aims CIRCE will guarantee to its clients:
a)a bidirectional flow of information linking all available innovation opportunities arisen in Europe with local needs and skills;
b)a niche network infrastructure grouping local innovation providers able to support them, with customised assistance, in the different aspects of the innovation procedures;
c) the participation in the IRC network actions in order to increase their opportunities in meeting other European entrepreneurs and researchers;
d) a qualified level of staff expertise as well as innovative and standardised tools and methodologies to ensure high quality of services and assistance. Through the above services, CIRCE aims at contributing towards the exploitation to the full of knowledge, skill and creativity resources of its regions, thus favouring economic growth and competitiveness of the whole European market.

The success of the project will be ensured by an experienced management structure based on a Consortium Agreement, an Annual Operative Plan and by way of regular co-ordination and operative meetings and training courses among the partners.
