Barcelona Synchrotron Park Sponsors the Sixth Ideas Generation Program
The Ideas Generation Program organized by PRUAB, the UAB University research park, is an original initiative supported by Barcelona Synchrotron Park that sponsors the top prize: every year, it aims at offering companies the benefit of the UAB researchers’ wealth of creativity to get proposals to their technological challenges.

This program (video in Catalan here) is based on: 1) Collecting technology challenges posed by local companies from a given sector, 2) Inspiring solutions from the UAB scientific community, 3) Training researchers to help them make their proposal a reality (assessment to elaborate a business plan, create a start-up etc.), 4) Evaluating these projects by experts, 5) Rewarding the best projects.
 
In the last five editions focused on ICT technologies, biotechnologies, environment, aerospace and culture sectors, respectively, 60 projects have been generated and 9 of them have been transformed into currently operative companies that could get a global amount of 1 million euros founds.
 
Barcelona Synchrotron Park supports this initiative that helps the economic development of the local territory and sponsors the sixth program, which this year is devoted to the biotechnology industry and biomedicine. This new edition starts now and will conclude on November 30 with the awards ceremony.
