Enhancing research to boost local growth
Sister – Liaison Office is an AREA project dedicated to enhancing research in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region.
Thanks to the collaboration with regional research institutions and to funding from the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, AREA has implemented the creation of a permanent system for the efficient transfer to business of all the knowledge and innovations existing within the region’s research system.
In particular, Sister – Liaison Office has devised and tested a new enhancement process which represents the most effective way of organizing the procedures and services required to transfer research findings onto the market.
The services offered by Sister – Liaison Office are available free of charge to all researchers in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
One of the activities promoted by Sister – Liaison Office has been the drawing up of a map of the competences existing in regional research institutions which are applicable to industry, with the aim of encouraging technology transfer to businesses.
