Merlin aims to foster and accelerate the transfer of knowledge from projects funded in FP7 and H2020 and researchers from Universities and Institutes, be it on the form of license agreements, patents or ideally, spinoffs or startups to directly exploit them. To this aim, MERLIN will organise practical hands-on workshops, meetups with potential partners, customers and investors, and will attend scientific conferences.

IRSUS will bridge the gaps faced by innovators (research teams, SMEs, spinoffs & start-ups) to reach the market with a feasible, viable and attractive business case and strategy for users, clients, partners and investors.
