Project description

The mission of the TETRACOL Coordination action is to boost European academia-to-industry technology transfer (TT) in all domains of Computing Systems, While many other European and national initiatives focus on training of entrepreneurs and support for start-up companies, the key differentiator of TETRACOM is a novel Instrument called Technology Transfer Project (TTP). TTPs help to lower the barrier for reseachers to make the first steps towards commercialisation of their research results. TTPs are designed to provide incentives for TT at small to medium scale via partial funding of dedicated, well-defined, and short term academia-industry collaborations that bring concrete R&D results into industrial use. This will be implemented via competitive Expressions-of-interest (EoI) calls for TTPs, whose coordination, priorization,evaluation and management are the major actions of TETRACOM.
