EULA-GTEC: Technology and Innovation Management Master

In order to strengthen scientific cooperation and increase the knowledge and technology transfer between Europe and Latin America, the EULA-GTEC project will allow sharing the experience developed in particular in the field of technology and innovation management.

The main objective is to promote new academic profiles that allow the generation of creative links between the research centres/universities and the socio-productive sector, and create innovative sustainable solutions for both regions based on new and/or innovative technologies or solutions. 

Moreover, the project has four specific objectives:

  1. To increase the quality and quantity of human capital – particularly in SMEs – devoted to knowledge management, technology transfer, financing innovative start-ups, solving sustainability problems.
  2. To train/educate new professionals with new competences and behaviours, capable of: discovering new opportunities, harmonizing technology transfer, developing research projects, managing financing schemes, introducing sustainability solutions and circular economy (concepts, business models, instruments), fostering society and market interactions and innovation in varied fields.
  3. To develop an IT platform with on-line tools, which will allow the launching and implementation of a Master Programme for the education and training of innovation managers.
  4. To create an Antenna system, connecting closely the master degree to the industry, by identifying firm innovative needs to promote their training and graduate’s employability, within a blended learning approach.

Broadly speaking, the main objective of this proposal is to build an e-learning system -based on a participatory and cooperative innovation model associated with a training/education programme at academic level- on how to identify product, process and service opportunities emerging in different fields with a sustainable approach.
