RETINA is coordinated by the University of Nova Gorica (Slovenia). Among the partners, there are also two CERIC partner facilities: Technical University Graz and NMR Centre from Chemical Institute in Ljubljana. The project aims at fostering access to research and innovation (R&I) infrastructures by companies in peripheral regions, especially in the field of advanced material engineering, by building a network of established laboratories with complementary skills in material science and providing research centres and small, medium and large enterprises with a “single entry point” access to the network. This will increase the chances of reaching the critical mass of R&I facilities in the area, stimulate companies to invest in R&I and consequently contribute to enhancing the competitiveness of less favoured regions. The project’s main outputs will be informative events, laboratory visits, Pilot Actions performed in collaboration with industries and research centres, and feedback to public authorities, targeting different groups (scientific partners, knowledge transfer intermediaries, industries and decision makers) to maximize the impact.
