Αmplifying the Knowledge and Use of Testbeds – AKUT Project
Another innovative project is being implemented in Cyprus through the ERASMUS+ Programme and the collaboration of Wise4, Krinova Science Park, Lund University (Sweden), the AULA DEI Science Park (Spain), and the highly innovative Skylab start-up incubator of DTU Technical University of Copenhagen (Denmark).
The four partners, having extensive experience in business planning, recognized the big problem of small and medium-sized enterprises in the field of nutrition, who want to try an innovative idea but are unable to have their own research and development department and the necessary access in testbeds.
As part of the project, the four partners aim to develop an online e-learning program in order to facilitate the exchange of knowledge about test infrastructures/platforms (testbeds), new technologies, and innovation infrastructures in the field of food.
The project advocates the improvement of knowledge of small and medium enterprises, helping especially in the development of new processes and food products as well as in the creation of new digital tools and learning methods as tools for the development of the business status of the participating organizations.
The purpose of the project is to help consultants, mentors, business designers, small and medium-sized enterprises, and start-ups in the food sector to gain immediate knowledge of the necessary and available testbeds.
Start date 01/9/2019 – End date 31/8/2022.
The project is co-funded by the European Commission, and by the Erasmus + KA2 Lifelong Learning Program.
