INCORE Project Kick-off

The most recent collaborative project in LPRC’s portfolioINCORE – held its Kick-off meeting online on the 17th of August, to start discussions on the implementation pathways for the project. INCORE is one of the 23 projects selected under the recent Cross-KIC call for Higher Education Institutions Innovation and Entrepreneurship development. The project aims to boost innovation and entrepreneurial capacity in higher education institutions in Europe’s Outermost Regions by seizing region-specific contextual and business opportunities.

The project represents a collaborative approach between four regions – Madeira and Azores (Portugal), Canary Islands (Spain) and La Reunion (France) – involving different actors from the Knowledge Triangle including education, research and industry partners (such as LPRC). The project is, however, driven by the HEIs from Madeira, Canarias and La Reunion, and these are supported by IST (Lisbon). The partnership includes:

  • Instituto Superior Técnico (HEI, Portugal)
  • Université de La Reunion (HEI, France)
  • Universidade da Madeira (HEI, Portugal)
  • Universidad Europea de Canárias (HEI, Spain)
  • Universidade da Madeira (HEI, Portugal)
  • La Palma Research Centre (SME/Research, Spain)
  • Trisolaris Advanced Technologies (SME, Portugal)

INCORE is divided in 4 WPs – Project Management, Setting the Stage, Action, Communication, Dissemination and Outreach. LPRC is leading the communication efforts, but also support the implementation of the work within the other WPs. The agenda of the Kick-off meeting included presentations and discussions on all of the future actions. From LPRC, Márcio Tameirão presented the vision for WP4 outreach activities.
