    The EU Knowledge Valorisation Week showcased excellent examples of policies and tools that promote the uptake of research results and science-based solutions for the benefit of all. Universities, business associations, research organisations, arts institutions, and other stakeholders helped shape the programme by sharing their best practices in knowledge valorisation.

    The Week brought together stakeholders and policy makers across Europe. It stimulated exchange of experiences and dialogue on ways to improve investments, capacities and skills for knowledge valorisation in the European Union.

    The EU Knowledge Valorisation Week was organised by the European Commission, Directorate-General Research and Innovation, EU Member States and EEA countries.
