Baltic Organisation and Network of Innovation Transfer Associations

„Interregional development by turning university research into business value”

Research cooperation as well as knowledge transfer between public research organisations and industry is insufficiently developed within the European innovation system. To develop the Baltic Sea Region into a high-tech region the available scientific knowledge needs to be successfully transferred into practice. Even though universities are important developers of new technologies and products their innovations often are not transferred for commercialization. This can be explained by lack of facilitating structures and underdeveloped commercial mindsets of academic staff. At the same time vast innovation potential of SMEs is not exploited due to missing resources.

The bonita project addresses these deficiencies by bridging the knowledge gaps between universities, laboratories, industrial actors and policy makers. The project consortium represents a mix of institutions responsible for regional technology transfer from 8 countries in the Baltic Sea Region. The project has been financed by the European Union’s Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013 with almost 2 million Euros.
