SEA-EU alliance, with University of Gdańsk being one of the partners, has received funds from the prestigious Horizon 2020 programme for the implementation of reSEArch-EU project. The acronym stands for : “reinforce SustainablE Actions, resilience, cooperation and harmonisation across and by the SEA-EU Alliance”.
reSEArch-EU seeks to bolster the research and innovation capacity of SEA-EU with support of business partners, in step with our shared, integrated and long-term strategy.
The overall budget of the project is 2 million euro and UG will receive over 318 thousand euro for carrying out the assigned tasks. Our university is responsible for a Work Package titled Bridging the Gap with Innovation Ecosystem.
The main objectives of the work package are:

- to empower early stage scientists to engage in own entrepreneurial initiatives;
- to build a foundation for a SEA-EU strategy of science and technology services strengthening and sharing innovation capacity;
- to establish university business collaborative platform reinforcing science-practice partnerships and cooperative models;
