AccelerAction project is a European-funded project that aims to create more connected and efficient innovation ecosystems in the sector of advanced technologies, supporting the scaling of companies, encouraging innovation and stimulating cooperation among national, regional and local innovation actors through a pan-European Networked Acceleration Programme and improved business acceleration services.
The key objectives of this project are:
- Design a method to assess the gaps & challenges in the DeepTech field located in less connected innovation ecosystems
- Create a structured and accessible database of stakeholders, including a virtual map with a clear overview of key info
- Implement a process of twinning, capacity building & peer learning among the target groups
- Create network connectivity to lay down the foundations for a European forum
The project targets business-acceleration providers, accelerators programme experts (including evaluators, thematic experts, mentors & investors), innovative start-ups & SMEs, policymakers and academic institutions. Thanks to different types of innovations, start-ups from better-connected innovation ecosystems benefit from more local accelerators with greater funding opportunities and more qualified business support services compared to their counterparts elsewhere.
In AccelerAction, INSME will lead WP6-Alliances generation & enhancing exploitation, overseeing the communication, dissemination and exploitation strategies, supported by the consortium members and leveraging on its global network of business support organisations to enlarge its network.
