Llamp Tech Transfer is promoting the participation of all five Valencian public universities in the innovation ecosystem. The I2CV Association and Startup Valencia, with the support of the General Directorate of Entrepreneurship of the Department of Sustainable Economy of the Generalitat Valenciana, are launching a new edition of this programme aimed at the university communities of the three provinces. The participating universities include UPV (Universitat Politècnica de València), UV (Universitat de València), UJI (Universitat Jaume I de Castellón), UMH (Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche), and UA (Universidad de Alicante).

For its second year, the acceleration programme aims to transform innovative projects into public technology-based companies that will drive the entrepreneurial, innovative and technological ecosystem of the Valencian Community. The primary goals of Llamp Tech Transfer revolve around identifying unique and innovative business ideas, assembling multidisciplinary entrepreneurial teams, and providing legal and business training to participants, among other objectives.

According to Nacho Mas, CEO of Startup Valencia, “the involvement of all five Valencian public universities underscores the significance of this programme as a backbone and catalyst for knowledge transfer between universities and startups“.

For José Sepúlveda, director of the I2CV Association, “Llamp Tech Transfer aims to bridge the gap between academia and entrepreneurship by leveraging the talent and technology generated by Valencian public universities and integrating them into the entrepreneurial ecosystem and the market“.

In terms of participation requirements, registration is available until the 30th May for projects that involve undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students, researchers, professors, and other members of the community from the five Valencian public universities.

To this end, the programme includes training sessions, mentoring, and personalised guidance from experts in various fields crucial for the establishment of a successful company.

Lastly, the programme will conclude with a Demo Day in November, where the participating projects will be presented, showcasing the results achieved throughout the programme to investors and the tech and innovation community.

The projects chosen in the previous edition of the Llamp Tech Transfer 2022 programme were ARGOS, AVICEMIS, Tweenvest, Bi-Add, Magas and Albufera-Non Conventional Synthesis.

Llamp Tech Transfer is part of the Llamp programme of the Regional Ministry of Economy. It also aligns with the objectives of Startup Valencia’s Tech Transfer Committee, which aims to link science with business. The committee comprises leaders in the field with national and international expertise, including José Capmany, Andreu Climent, Narcís Cardona, Fernando Conesa, Patricia Pastor and Iñaki Berenguer. The coordination of the programme is overseen by Judith Saladrigas and José Sepúlveda, director of the I2CV Association.
