On October 27th at 15.00 there will be the Netval webinar entitled "Initiatives and POC contracts", in collaboration with the University of Florence, on the Google Meet platform.
The phase of maturation and development of ideas of university origin towards prototypes and then towards applicable products, services and processes is among the most critical in TT.
The "valley of death" is the term associated with these stages of development that see the lack of funds for technical development activities on the one hand a technological risk still too high to justify industrial investments on the other.
"Proof of Concept" (POC) funding is aimed at demonstrating effectiveness and testing and validating technologies, to make them more "attractive" and "ready" for further investment.
In the webinar will be presented approaches in support of the POC, implemented by universities, investment funds and government agencies and will be commented on the mechanisms of operation, advantages and disadvantages.
