Knowledge transfer, key for building an unlimited society
Currently, we are living in a highly competitive world and one in constant evolution. To prosper in this environment, it is crucial to promote collaboration and the transfer of knowledge between different groups. In the Valencian Community, we have people with great talent and entrepreneurial potential who can help us promote the economic and social development of the region and build the unlimited company we are working towards at the LAB Foundation.
An entrepreneurial spirit is fundamental for economic growth and job generation. There are numerous top-of-the-range researchers and scientists in the Valencian Community who, with the proper support, can convert their innovative ideas into successful companies. By connecting these groups focusing on research with the business world, an ecosystem is created in which knowledge is transformed into products and services which have a positive impact on society.
Discovering hidden talent
The talent and experience of researchers and scientists often go unnoticed outside academic circles. However, when collaboration between these collectives and companies, is fomented, for example, through meetings like the one we held last March in which we helped promote innovation, we open up an opportunity to publicise their work and apply their knowledge in practical contexts. This does not only help boost their professional development but also provides companies with access to knowledge which can offer innovative solutions and a competitive edge for their R&D&I departments.
The transfer of knowledge is a bidirectional process in which researchers and companies benefit mutually. Researchers can learn from business experience and acquire practical skills which complement their theoretical knowledge. On the other hand, companies can avail of scientific and technological advances to improve their processes, develop innovative products and raise competitiveness on the market. Collaboration between these groups helps foment creativity, innovation and the development of solutions.
Building an unlimited company
The association between groups focused on research and companies not only has an economic impact but also helps build an unlimited company in the Valencian Community. By encouraging knowledge transfer and collaboration, sustainable development, quality employment and an improvement in the quality of life of the citizens are all fomented. In addition, the entrepreneurial spirit is encouraged and values like innovation, continuous learning and adaptability are cultivated, all of which are fundamental in a world under constant change.
This collaboration helps boost the entrepreneurial spirit and discover hidden talent and promotes knowledge transfer, generating a positive impact on the economic and social development of the region. By building an unlimited society based on collaboration and innovation, the Valencian Community can position itself as a reference in the sphere of entrepreneurship, innovation, technology and research.
