The research programme proposes the conception of
a collaborative cloud based platform that implements a new methodology to
support higher education institutions to link with businesses across Europe.
The platform will support companies to manage and implement complex innovation
processes by taking advantage of universities' research and technological
knowledge and expertise in a systematic way, by enabling an open multi-agent
focused innovation (i.e. university/business focused innovation). The project aims
to provide a framework to build Business-University collaboration with number
of collaboration tools. The broader aim of the project includes designing the
methodology in such a way that would make Knowledge Triangle work.

The project has a strong industrial and academic
basis; putting together the combined efforts of 8 reputed industrial and
academic organisations in the way to strengthen the bond between businesses and
universities. This big effort will result in a methodology and collaborative
platform that will be validated and assessed in predefined business scenarios
at these organizations. Project consortium consists of 7 partners from Turkey,
Finland and UK. Coordinator: Bahcesehir University (Turkey).
