INTRODUCTION

The Entreprenari programme is the framework of action for  BIC GIPUZKOA and the UPV/EHU, Gipuzkoa Campus, which facilitates/enables the processes of the Transfer of Technology and Knowledge to the market via the Creation of Innovative and/or Science/Technology-based Companies and specific knowledge-intensive companies, through:

  • Strengthening the entrepreneurial spirit and recruitment among teachers, researchers, interns and students in the university environment.
  • Accompanying the projects in their development and launch onto the market.

Who is it aimed at?

  • University researchers who wish to commercially exploit the results they have obtained within the framework of the research projects in which they are participating.
  • Entrepreneurs from the university context to develop innovative projects.
  • Companies who choose to exploit the results of research studies carried out in conjunction with the UPV/EHU, either by creating a new company or by diversifying the existing company. The research results may come from the company’s initiative or from the University, or from both. The University will be involved in the transfer of this initiative.

The Programme is structured around the following lines of action:

  • To motivate and support the generation of entrepreneurial attitudes through raising awareness and motivating the university collective. Motivation seminars and specific conferences are organised, dealing with the creation of innovative and/or science/technology-based companies.
  • To promote the generation of ideas and the search for needs that give rise to new business initiatives that have great value for the market.

For this purpose, it is proposed that research groups/researchers engage in commercial and technological value processes with experts in the field of the corresponding activity.
