On 29-30 October 2020 the CAROTS project partners met, for the second time – due to the COVID 19-pandemic – online. They reviewed the progress made in the past six months including the CAROTS mid-term conference “Bridging the gap between Science and Business: How to empower Intermediary Companies” held on 15 September 2020.

Working in breakout groups the partners then tried to see into the future by drafting their definition of a successful outcome of the CAROTS project looking back in December 2021. As the strategic vision of the CAROTS project is an increase in the number of scientific service companies and more awareness about their potential in order to improve the innovation ecosystem, a successful outcome of the project would generate ideas for funding three new specialised scientific service companies. To achieve this, the partners discussed concrete practical next steps of a programme to be publicly announced soon.
