Innovation Ecosystem

INL can offer cooperation and development opportunities, both using internal INL resources and within the regional and international innovation ecosystem.

We foster the collaboration between INL’s research community and other players such as academia, RTOs, large corporations, SMEs and start-ups, providing access to an ecosystem that represents the complete value chain in a wide variety of applications and markets. We aim to:

  • Enhance our RTD&I capabilities with knowledge creation and transfer
  • Develop effective research partnerships thanks to cooperation within educational programmes
  • Promote the rapid industrialization of ideas and academic results
  • Nurture new talent and expertise through training and financing of PhD candidates
  • Foster the entrepreneurship spirit
