Responsible Innovation-Led Entrepreneurial University Transformation Centres (Ecosystem Integration Labs)
The overall joint vision of RiEcoLab for 2030 is to develop a novel way of performing research and development in universities to ensure immediate commercialisation (spin-offs) and involvement of a large number of internal stakeholders (academic and non-academic staff, as well as students). The new operational framework will be introduced via Ecosystem Integration Labs (EILs), which will be developed and implemented by each participating university (by relying on existing infrastructures, such as research support offices and technology transfer offices).
Due to its unique experience and profound knowledge in promoting, evaluating, and celebrating entrepreneurial and engaging aspects and activities driven in and through HEIs, in this project, ACEEU will be in charge of:
1. Post-Pilot Capacity Building: working with the involved HEIs and engage them in assessing their competencies in entrepreneurialism and innovation and ensuring the long-term innovativeness and entrepreneurialism delivered via the Innovation Vision Action Plans (IVAPs);
2. Pilot implementation which includes Impact Measuring Stage;
3. Communication infrastructure and tools.
Additionally, ACEEU will also actively contribute to Work Package 1 (WP1): Framework and Training Material development. This WP entails the creation of toolkits that are purposefully created to empower HEIs to implement their Innovative Vision Action Plans (IVAPs).
