Under the framework of CÓDIGOMÁIS, nine innovative projects in the field of Health and Ageing were selected to be supported in their valorisation and transfer to the market.
BIO2SKIN, the projected presented by INL, is part of the group now entitled to the prize of fifty thousand euros (€50,000.00) in-kind contribution, to be used in services related with the implementation of the Project. BIO2SKIN will also benefit from mentoring sessions for business development, and access to a web marketplace.
The CÓDIGOMAIS – A New Innovation Ecosystem in Health for Galicia and North of Portugal is a project co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) under the Cooperation programme Interreg V-A Spain-Portugal (POCTEP) 2014-2020. It aims at fostering the creation of a cross-border innovation ecosystem in the area of cooperation Galicia-North of Portugal, open to all key regional stakeholders and with a strong international orientation.
Nine partners from across North of Portugal and Galicia are working together to increase the market-oriented RTD in health, to promote the information flow on the needs and demand of technological solutions within the cooperation area and to foster cooperation between research centres, regional administration, companies and end-users.
The initiative is led by ACIS – Axencia Galega para Xestion do Coñecemento en Saude (Spain) and brings together eight key regional players in the health cluster: INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (Portugal), UVIGO – Universidade de Vigo (Spain), USC – Universidade de Santiago de Compostela (Spain), CSG – Cluster Saúde de Galicia (Spain), Bioga – Cluster Tecnolóxico Empresarial das Ciencias da Vida (Spain), HCP – Health Cluster Portugal (Portugal), FMUP – Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade do Porto (Portugal) and 2CA – Centro Clínico Académico Braga (Portugal).
