Grace project overview

  1. 1. Generating Research projects through interaction between ACademia and Enterprises Claudio Delrio Suor Orsola Benincasa University DEVICE Kick-off meeting Reggio Emilia, 28/02/2012
  2. 2. Starting point for the GRACE project • Great variability of practices and policy initiatives • While most existing research focuses on the effects of university-industry links on innovation-specific variables, such as patents or firm innovativeness, the organisational dynamics of these relationships remain under-researched • The overall aim of GRACE - Generating Research projects through interaction between ACademia and Enterprises is fostering Multistakeholders co-generation of research projects combining various techniques and approaches such as goal setting creativity techniques, diversity management, cross-sectoral and cross-cultural negotiation, in an open innovation perspective.28/02/2012 2
  3. 3. Objectives • to investigate the state of the art of actors, projects and research on universities/industries cooperation and methodologies and innovative practices supporting the multi-stakeholders generation of research projects • To increase the awareness and capacity of enterprises, Universities, research intermediaries, user representatives and other stakeholders about the need of promoting creative co-generation of research projects • To develop an approach for improving the research project generation process involving the afore-mentioned stakeholders • To test and validate the proposed approach in real life contexts and explore its transferability potential • Create a platform for dialogue for all those aiming at promoting dialogue between universities and industries28/02/2012 3
  4. 4. Expected results • Report and Mapping of innovative and good practices • methodology aimed at supporting Multistakeholders generation of research projects • Story board of pilot experiences • Report on the implementation and evaluation of pilot experiences • Training handbook on research projects co- generation management for research facilitators into industries and intermediaries with Universities28/02/2012 4

  9. 9. Relevant initiatives Creating Knowledge through Design & Conceptual Innovation The project aims to transform teaching in higher education, and to develop respective pedagogical models of "design as inquiry". In order to gain acceptance in academia the model of "design as inquiry" is grounded epistemologically and methodologically.28/02/2012 9
