ACTTiVAte project promoting Value Chain Innovation and Reconfiguration

Industrial value chains are increasingly being reconfigured as a result of cross-border or cross-sectoral collaboration. This is because today, innovation is likely to occur at the borderlines between different industries and sectors and it is the facilitation and acceleration of new combinations along and across value chains that represents a major source for potential innovation and growth for enterprises, specially for SMEs.

Radical innovationis not required to be disruptive and value chain innovation can be equally effective, when an innovation is brought from one sector into another. So, the specific innovation must not always be new to the world, but can come from the adaptation and testing of its application in a new context.

The ACTTiVAte Project will foster this kind of cross sectoral collaboration to help SMEs develop Emerging Industries, configure new value chains and access new markets.

Analysis of the dynamics of technology transfer in regions and clusters involved in the ACTTiVAte Project

Participate in ACTTiVAte’s Survey Form

The main objective of this survey is to carry out the following analyses:
  • Demand and supply of technologies sought and offered by the companies – participants of clusters
  • Current practices and scale of technology transfer within and between the clusters involved in the project
  • Identification of factors that facilitate or hinder technology transfer as well as the current and preferred forms and procedures for technology transfer, with a particular emphasis on cooperation between clusters (currently applied/ preferred technology transfer methodologies).
