Give an overview of the instrument 
Regional incubators structures are seen as a key measure to support co-operation between public research bodies and enterprises. A national call for project was launched in March 1999 to select new incubator structures at a regional level. The main objective was the development of collaborations between public research organisations / HEIs in order to valorise public research through the creation of technology based firms (start-ups shall either be spin-offs of public research labs or use public research innovations/technologies). An Incubator structure is a place where project bearers wishing to create new business could receive support in terms of training, advices and funding system.
