This year the workshop will focus, among other issues, on how to speed up the transfer of research and innovation to the market. It is well known that European excellence in research is not reflected on the market positioning. It is still cumbersome and slow to transfer knowledge from universities to companies.
In you experience, which is the single thing that should be discussed if we want to accelerate this transfer of research into the market? Do you have any experience on how easy/ difficult is to create a company to commercialize research results? What are the main bottlenecks?
