EU Knowledge Valorisation Platform launched to accelerate the uptake of research results

Today, the European Commission launched the EU Knowledge Valorisation Platform, a digital space that provides an interactive forum to stimulate cooperation across borders and improve the broad uptake of research results in society and the economy.

Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said:

As we emerge from this coronavirus pandemic and transition towards a green and digital economy, the uptake of research results really matters. The Knowledge Valorisation Platform will help us work together with Member States and key stakeholders to accelerate this process

The platform will enable the sharing of best practice, knowledge and expertise, thereby improving policies and enhancing capacities and skills. This will foster a strong culture of entrepreneurship, inclusive innovation in Europe, and knowledge valorisation turning research results into sustainable solutions with economic value and societal benefits.

As one of the actions under the new European Research Area (ERA) Communication it will co-create the development of the Code of Practice for the smart use of Intellectual Property, in response to requests made by Member States.

The presented policy measures and concrete practices cover a wide range of topics from inter-sectoral mobility, knowledge transfer intermediaries and smart Intellectual Property management to industrial and place-based innovation ecosystems and unconventional collaborations for knowledge uptake.


The launch of the EU Knowledge Valorisation Platform is one of the follow-up actions to the new European Research Area and to the survey named Towards a policy dialogue and exchange of best practices on knowledge valorisation, published in February.
