November, 29, 2019

In the framework of the EBSOMED project INSME welcomed two members of the team of the UCAS (University College of Applied Sciences) Technology Incubator – UCASTI from the 18th to the 22nd of November at its premises in Rome. They took part in a peer learning programme dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and best practices that could support them in establishing a new innovation centre in Gaza, Palestine.

During this five-day programme Hani Abuamer, Marketing & Networking Specialist and Tariq Thabet, Programs Manager at UCASTI had the chance to share their experience with the experts involved in this activity who explored a diversity of issues related to the incubation process.

In particular they had a fruitful discussion with Alberto Previato and Enrico Segantin, from the t2i (INSME Member) certified incubator during which they analysed how to manage an incubator, the criteria to select the start-ups to be incubated and the measures adopted to support them. Furthermore two sessions dedicated to intellectual property rights with a particular attention to the technology transfer management have been delivered two experts from De Tullio & Partners (INSME Member). Astrid Wiedersich Avena shared insights on how to protect IP and, in collaboration with her colleague Alessandro Piras gave practical advices on how to fill a patent application. During the site visit to the ContaminAction Hub the UCASTI team observed a very successful model of public private partnership whose projects and initiatives, as mentioned by Giordano Ferrari, take into particular account their social impact.
