The European Research Area Committee (ERAC) has recently set up a group on knowledge transfer. The group is composed of representatives of Member States and Associated Countries including policy makers, senior representatives of research and innovation agencies and intellectual property (Patent) offices.
The group main activities will be directed to the implementation of:
- The European Research Area;
- Commission Recommendation and Code of Practice on knowledge transfer;

The overall objective of the group is to improve knowledge exchange within Europe and with Europe's international partners and to make an effective contribution to Europe “2020” vision and objectives. To that purpose, the group has two main functions. Firstly, it will act as a strategic advisory body to ERAC on knowledge transfer. Secondly, it will develop relevant initiatives and ensure that these are delivered effectively.
