The main objective of iLINC is to establish an open European Network of law incubators that supports the provision of legal services to ICT start-ups and entrepreneurs. The services are delivered by postgraduate students from leading university-based law institutions at Queen Mary University of London and the Universities of Amsterdam (IViR), Leuven and Hamburg.
iLINC is achieving this objective by focussing on:
– Understanding the legal requirements of start-ups;
– Developing and exchanging best-practices for service delivery from law incubators across a European (and extensions to a US network);
– Developing and sharing best practices for linking student project engagement with learning programmes; and
– Establishing a platform for collaboration with focussed events and an online portal.
Prof. Van Eechoud is lead on Work Package 3 ‘Links to learning’. Dr. Ronan Fahy is project-researcher on that WP.
