European Innovation District

ENLIGHT RISE will reinforce academia-business cooperation by setting up an ENLIGHT European Innovation District, starting with the development of a map of ENLIGHT industry-academia partnerships related to our flagship challenges.

The digital innovation district will gather public and private actors to foster university-business cooperation and entrepreneurial and innovation capacity that is inclusive to all parts of the economic sector.
To this end, we will formalize an ENLIGHT Innovation Network of academy-industry collaborators fostering collaboration and partnership on grant applications. We will use ad hoc methodology and tools such as ENLIGHT AIM Days (Academic-Industry Meeting Days) to jointly define R&I priorities in relation with the 5 flagship challenges and identify gaps and opportunities in the market for innovation, matching with ENLIGHT R&I skills.
