Eight technologies from the University of Girona, University of Lleida, the ICMAB and the IREC have been selected for the first pre-assessment study. The evaluation of those technologies will be delivered by the end of September and a shortlist of technologies will be assessed in phase 2 for a more detailed market and IP assessment, and commercialization strategy.
Four groups from the ICMAB participate in the XRE4S, whcih started the activity this year 2020.
The Lab to Market (L2M) program is the XRE4S technology scouting program. The call opened on 18 May 2020 and remained open to 18 June 2020.
