Policy review on knowledge valorisation channels and tools published
On 2 July 2020, the European Commission published a report on "Valorisation Channels and Tools. Boosting the transformation of knowledge into new sustainable solutions" which is the first step for an EU knowledge valorisation strategy. In its conclusions on "Accelerating knowledge circulation in the EU" (2018), the Council of the European Union called on the European Commission to develop a strategy to accelerate the potential uptake of research and innovation (R&I) results and data.
The policy review identifies and analyses the main channels for knowledge valorisation, it provides a toolbox to promote the uptake of R&I results and data. To enhance the diffusion of excellent national, regional and organisation-level initiatives, it also includes references to European and international best practices. As these practices are dynamic, the report is seen as the basis for designing and permanently updating an R&I valorisation strategy.
