Third Party Projects
ASTP and its members have a distinguished track record of partnering with international organisations and institutions to deliver projects to the knowledge transfer ecosystem. We are always interested in joining new projects.
EIPIN Innovation Society
EIPIN Innovation Society is a comprehensive project at the forefront of multidisciplinary research, examining the role of intellectual property (IP) as a complex adaptive system in innovation.
The focus will be on the European regulatory framework for fostering innovation with the aim of enhancing Europe’s capacity for innovation-based sustainable economic growth. The longstanding European Intellectual Property Institutes Network (EIPIN), a consortium of leading research and training centres in the area of intellectual property, is the driving force behind the project. The project will officially start on 1 March 2017.
Public Research Organisation GRowing Europe through best practice SolutionS for Technology Transfer is a 3-year pilot initiative funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme
Public Research Organisation GRowing Europe through best practice SolutionS for Technology Transfer was a 3-year pilot initiative funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The project aimed to contribute to Europe’s economic growth by ensuring that PROs are better equipped to transfer valuable knowledge to industry. The project facilitated the exchange and sharing of experiences, capacity building between Europe’s leading PROs and those PROs with the greatest potential to commercialise their research results, which was done by gathering best practices and developing an applicable and sustainable collection of technology transfer tools, methods and insights. The EU has recognised ASTP as the custodian of the legacy of this project, which will be of great value and relevance for our members and for the association.

UTILE aimed to develop an online marketplace to promote awareness and access to outputs of completed FP7 health projects.
UTILE aimed to develop an online marketplace to promote awareness and access to outputs of completed FP7 health projects. The defragmentation of opportunities and their presentation in a market-attractive context (all as driven by informed market players) should increase success rates of conversion of results into development or exploitation projects.
Strategic and targeted support to incentivise talented newcomers to NMBP projects under Horizon Europe
FIT-4-NMP's overall objective is to increase the participation of talented newcomers from underrepresented regions in
NMBP projects in Horizon Europe, as compared to Horizon 2020. Talented newcomers are promising innovation organisations – especially SMEs – that have not participated in H2020 NMBP. Meanwhile, underrepresented regions are regions in EU-13, EU-15 and Associated Countries with a low participation in H2020 NMBP. The increase in participation of the talented newcomers will be brought about by connecting them with NMBP hotspots, where important NMBP innovations are demonstrated, as well as networking them with NMBP Top Innovators.
FIT-4-NMBP will take strategic and targeted approaches to achieve this overall objective.
From a strategic perspective, FIT-4-NMBP will survey talented newcomers and experts responsible for regional and national R&I policy, in order to understand the precise reasons for non-participation of newcomers in NMBP projects. In turn, best practices will be identified and policy measures formulated and communicated to relevant stakeholders: talented newcomers; regional/national authorities responsible for R&I policy; local innovation and technology transfer nodes; and the EC.

European Network of Research Infrastructures & Industry for Collaboration
The ENRIITC project aims to build a permanent pan-European network of Industrial Liaison and Contact Officers (ILOs and ICOs) and enable industry to become a full partner of research infrastructures whether it is as a user, a supplier, or a co-creator. In other words, ENRIITC supports the establishment of strategic, cross-border partnerships between industry and research infrastructures. The primary objectives of ENRIITC are: Establish a sustainable European network of ILOs and ICOs which enables mutual learning Map collaboration potential between research infrastructures and industry, Develop and refine strategies and best practices to foster these collaborations, Raise awareness among industry for collaboration opportunities at research infrastructures, and demonstrate impact. ENRIITC brings together 11 Partners and more than 60 Associates from around Europe. The network members represent diverse scientific areas, industrial sectors and geographical regions. ENRIITC is inclusive and welcomes new members.
