A roadmap developed presenting possible evolution scenarios, related strategies and actions and provides recommendations for a brighter future of University-Business Cooperation and entrepreneurial and innovative processes within the BIOHEALTH sector.
This report will be developed together with key actors and end-users (see Events page for more information), based on an exhaustive mapping of the current landscapes, trends and lessons learned. It will present possible evolution scenarios, related strategies and actions and provide recommendations for a brighter future of University-Business Cooperation and entrepreneurial and innovative processes within the sector.
The Blueprint will be revised and updated, under the leadership of the Business partners considering the evolving pace, technological advances and dynamics within the BIOHEALTH ecosystem. Also, lessons learned from the project will be incorporated and the success achieved will constitute a best practice that will inspire further cooperation actions between key players. An updated vision and related strategies will be design and new actions will be planned and give new content and direction to the BIOHEALTH Gear Box Blueprint.
The Bio-All project is built-on a sound participatory approach, where although partners represent end-users, the later are also called to participate and play an active role in co-creating, co-working and co-sharing activities (consult details on the set of engagement events at the events page).
The Bio-All project is built-on a sound participatory approach, where although partners represent end-users, the later are also called to participate and play an active role in co-creating, co-working and co-sharing activities. This is achieved through a set of small scale-events that with different purposes, have a similar root: to engage end-users in the processes and boost the sense of ownership of the “insight community” (which in turn will bring benefits in their motivation to sustain the results achieved).
Igniting, Unconferences, Sparkathons and Gear Box Labs events will continuously be promoted, allowing both the collection of valid and relevant feedback to update and improve the resources and the attraction and engagement of other stakeholders (with positive effects on the enlargement of the network).
A pioneering International Joint Post-Graduation composed by a modular programme, a project/business plan unit, visits to BIOHEALTH established business and project-based activities (such as Hackathons/Boot Camp/Pitching Day).
This innovative educative asset will foster student’s knowledge in BIO-related subjects and will enhance their entrepreneurial mind-set and t-shaped skills, providing participants the opportunity to be not only in direct contact with entrepreneurial/innovation-driven processes and collaborative practices (built-on a solid University-Business Cooperation framework), but also to have access to a unique international adventure (through cross-learning mobilities).
The International Joint Post-Graduation will be integrated into the current catalogue of the Academia partners and jointly promoted by University of Beira Interior (Portugal), Universidad de Granada (Spain) and Università Politecnica delle Marche (Italy) during the academic year of 2020-2021.
A ground breaking International Joint Acceleration Programme built-on a 360º logic, integrated and tailor-made, in which, after going through a selection process, beneficiaries (seed-companies) will have access to a wide fan of technical and practical business support activities, aiming at increasing their innovation and growth capacities.
The programme links the different stakeholders in the BIOHEALTH ecosystem and is fully based in the idea of mobility, including networking/mentoring opportunities with experts and professionals; a training programme composed by Master Classes and Workshops to enhance professional and t-shaped skills, and Demo days, where ventures graduate and pitch in front of qualified investors.
The International Joint framework in which the programme will be developed is reflected in testing phase, during which the programme will be run by Academia, Incubators/Accelerators and Business in a co-adjuvating scheme that allows the seed-companies (involved in student’s mobility) to take advantage not only from the expertise of the different partners, but also from the specifics of each geographic location.
The International Joint Acceleration Programme will be integrated into the current catalogue of the partners from Incubators/Accelerators and jointly promoted by BGI (Portugal), PTS Granada (Spain) and Cube Labs (Italy).
A collaborative online hub aimed at fostering open innovation dynamics and co-creation processes (also boosted by other engaging activities), specially University-Business Cooperation schemes that will support the development of new competences for future jobs and businesses in BIOHEALTH sector).
The Hub will be also maintained, being considered a core tool to promote and celebrate the lively dynamics generated within BIO-ALL. This Hub is vital to inspire, encourage and support open innovation activities and co-creation processes, playing a key role in creating awareness to and showing the project results to other stakeholders. Maintained and updated by the project coordinator, the Hub will be an important component of the new editions of the International Joint Post-Graduation and Acceleration Programme, as well as the activities linked to the update of the Blueprint (as it consists of a wider virtual “insight community”).
