e-RESATER seeks to develop a sustainable, durable and competitive network involving economic, professionals and organizations stakeholders capable of co-develop e-Health and e-Inclusion products and services in the SUDOE territory. To make this possible, it is necessary to stimulate an ongoing process of sharing, exchange and transfer of knowledge under the framework of technology, practices and experiences developed in a local, national and transnational level. Each active member may participate in one or more of the four roles defined: technology supplier, technology receiver, technology transfer facilitator, and end-user – following an end-user centered approach.

The main aim of ViTLab platform is to promote technology transfer support. It facilitates this process through its different intervention lines, collaborative tools and specific actions. In this framework the participating organizations have a key role enabling and driving technology transfer, finding the technology application partners in industry, and diffusing the research results.
