Encouraging the Commercialization of Research Results and the Utilization of Cluster Mapping through EU-US Collaborations

Dec 6, 2011 - Dec 8, 2011

Center for Transatlantic Relations - Johns Hopkins University | 1717 Massachusetts Avenue, Washington, DC

Aim of the Meeting:

The workshop contributes to the Transatlantic Innovation Action Partnership Work Plan, which seeks to:

  1. Further develop a transatlantic market for innovative products with as few barriers to trade and investment as possible;
  2. Facilitate U.S. – EU leadership in establishing global policy approaches and addressing common third country challenges and opportunities;
  3. Promote mutual learning and sharing of best practices; and
  4. Encourage stakeholder transparency, participation, and collaboration.

Building upon the work already under way in existing EU-US regulatory dialogues and cooperative research ventures, and drawing extensively upon the input of stakeholders, the Transatlantic Innovation Action Partnership initially focuses on the following elements:

  1. Establishing two new sectoral work streams in priority areas not sufficiently addressed through existing co-operation: raw materials and bio-based products; and Exchanging good practice on innovation policy.
  2. The December workshop will focus on the exchange of good practice on innovation policy. More specifically, the workshop will address good practices with regard to the commercialization of research results and innovations in cluster mapping.
