Solution Labs Tunisia (SolLabTUN)
The starting point of the research project is the Tunisian research and innovation system, which has well-established research infrastructures and intermediary organizations at its disposal (e.g. technology transfer offices, Technopoles, incubators, innovation centers, accelerators), but unexploited potentials with regard to transferring the generated knowledge into commercializable innovations. With a specific exchange format, the project starts at the interface between science, universities and business and has the goal of promoting the emergence of innovative, market-driven solutions as well as the networking of different innovation-based groups of actors. The focus is on young talents, especially students and graduates and their creative ideas.
In the medium to long term, this should contribute to improved innovation capacities, to the creation of employment options, especially for highly-qualified persons and ultimately to improving the standard of living in Tunisia.
