Incubators for innovation and technological transfer in the Mediterranean 

INTECMED is a EU-funded project within the ENI CBC MED programme. This project aims to develop an integrated innovation ecosystem at local level to support technology transfer and commercialization of research results. The project will use the methodology of Business Ready Innovation Mechanism to develop a shared vision of how to build start-ups overcoming inexperience and gap between academic knowledge and business development. This methodology will be implemented by creating regional alliances, facility points, mentorship programmes and innovation exhibitions, where investors and innovators have the opportunity exchange their ideas and business opportunities. Through mentorship, skills development in business planning, the commercialisation of research results of at least 48 entrepreneurs and researchers will be fostered and at least 4 new spin-offs will be launched.
