Project – Cross-border network of the incubation system for new ICT companies

the Programme: 2014 - 2020 INTERREG V-A Italy - France (Maritime)

Description


Description (EN): The project involves the creation of a cross-border network, called “RETIC”, between entities specialised in pre-incubation and incubation services (including post-incubation services) for new companies in the ICT sector applied to the supply chains of boating, tourism and energy. The challenge is to create a virtuous ecosystem thanks to which potential companies for products with high technological content may be created and consolidated. A network of skills will therefore be activated through a constitution agreement, by networking, at the cross-border level, entities which until now operated individually in providing services to accompany the creation of new companies. By starting out with a cross-border approach it will be possible to activate a structured offering of qualified and integrated services, able to draw upon international best practices and trial innovative methods for “scouting” and the “matching” between supply and demand for technological solutions. The availability of these services, combined with adequate promotional activities, will also enable an improvement of the contextual conditions in the partner territories, making them more attractive for aspiring entrepreneurs, including those from other geographical areas. The main outputs: the operating plan for scouting, virtual instruments (market place and game-training) to favour matching between supply and demand for innovation, service catalogues, the management and communication platform for promoting the network services, the integration of information, and interaction between entities in the network. The main beneficiaries will be aspiring entrepreneurs, economic organisations, Universities/research centres, and incubators. On the one hand these actions will be aimed, with a bottom-up approach, at enabling new entrepreneurial ideas to emerge, on the other hand at identifying innovative methods for accompanying the creation of a company.
Description: Il progetto prevede la creazione di una Rete transfrontaliera denominata “RETIC” tra soggetti specializzati nei servizi di pre-incubazione e incubazione (compresi i servizi di post-incubazione) di nuove imprese nel settore TIC applicato alle filiere di nautica, turismo ed energia. La sfida è creare un ecosistema virtuoso grazie al quale potenziali imprese di prodotti ad alto contenuto tecnologico possano nascere e consolidarsi. Attraverso un Accordo di costituzione sarà quindi attivato un network di competenze, integrando in rete, a livello transfrontaliero, soggetti che sinora operavano in maniera individuale nella fornitura di servizi di accompagnamento alla nascita di nuove imprese. Partendo da un approccio transfrontaliero sarà possibile attivare un''offerta strutturata di servizi qualificati ed integrati, capace di attingere alle best practice internazionali e sperimentare modalità innovative per lo “scouting” e il “ matching” tra domanda e offerta di soluzioni tecnologiche. La disponibilità di tali servizi, unita ad un’adeguata attività di promozione consentirà inoltre di migliorare le condizioni di contesto dei territori partner rendendoli maggiormente attrattivi per gli aspiranti imprenditori provenienti anche da altre aree geografiche. Gli output principali: il Piano operativo di scouting, gli strumenti virtuali (market place e game-training) per favorire il matching tra domanda e offerta di innovazione, i cataloghi di servizi, la piattaforma di gestione e comunicazione per la promozione dei servizi di rete, l’integrazione delle informazioni, l’interazione tra i soggetti del network, avranno come principali beneficiari gli aspiranti imprenditori, le organizzazioni economiche, le Università/centri di ricerca, gli incubatori e saranno volti, con un approccio bottom-up, da un lato a far emergere nuove idee imprenditoriali, dall''altro ad individuare modalità innovative di accompagnamento alla nascita di impresa.

Le défi est de créer un « eco-système » vertueux qui permettra aux entreprises potentielles à haute valeur technologique de naître et de se développer. Au travers un Accord, un réseau de compétences transfrontalier sera mis en œuvre, afin de définir dans leur offre de services aux nouvelles entreprises commune et en lien avec les bonnes pratiques mises en œuvre sur les différents territoires. L’approche transfrontalière permettra d’activer une offre structurée de services qualifiés et intégrés, capable de puiser les bonnes pratiques internationales et expérimenter des modalités innovantes pour le « scouting » et le « matching » entre demande et offre de solutions technologiques. L’élargissement de services associé ainsi que leur promotion permettra en outre d’améliorer les l’attractivité des territoires pour favoriser l’entreprenariat local et transfrontalier. Les outputs principaux : le Plan opérationnel de recrutement, les instruments vertueux (market place et game-training) pour faciliter le matching entre demande et offre d’innovation, les catalogues de services, la plateforme de gestion et communication pour la promotion des services du réseau, l’intégration des informations, l’interaction entre les acteurs du réseau avec comme bénéficiaires principaux les entrepreneurs potentiels, les organisations économiques, les Universités/centres de recherche, les incubateurs à fin de faire émerger d’une part les nouvelles idées entrepreneuriales, et d’autre part de définir des modalités innovantes d’accompagnement à la naissance d’entreprise par un approche bottom-up.
