Research & Technology Organisations (RTOs) in MED and elsewhere have identified a challenge on finding a common language and field of interest between researchers and private entities and reaching a common understanding of the commercial imperatives. MET3 aims to develop a network for integrated trans-regional cooperation between knowledge & technology providers, innovation intermediaries and users and thus facilitate industrial and commercial exploitation of research results by taking into account technology and other -soft- aspects in the process. The specific goal of this network is to design, develop and test a portfolio of tools for the joint identification & exploitation of public research in targeted domains of MED interest. The partnership will use best practice and individual experiences from partners and associates and implement concrete actions to tackle the challenges stemming from the lack of common tools between practitioners and of interregional exchange.
