TIPS is a support action funded by the European Commission to enhance the capacity of EU transport projects to transform research results into innovative products and services.
Efficient transport contributes to sustainable wealth and prosperity in Europe, but intensified competition calls for more innovation and high tech knowledge to maintain Europe's competitiveness, ensuring sustainable, efficient and affordable transport services and developing new skills and job opportunities. A lot of money is put into EU and national programmes for research and innovation but with no guarantee that results are turned into innovative products and services and brought to the market.
This is where TIPS comes in: TIPS will develop good practices on exploitation strategies to help ongoing transport projects exploit their research results.
All assistance offered is free of charge and ranges from workshops and training academies, over brokerage and networking events, to one-to-one support for the development of sound market deployment plans.
