In order to achieve the aforementioned aim the main general objective of the proposal is the establishment and operation of 4 training and innovation centres (Leather Hubs) which will act as intermediary between innovation seekers (industry) and the innovation providers (research teams in the universities, laboratories, spin-offs)

The main outcomes of LEATHUB project will be the establishment of four training and innovation centers in four universities in Russia and Mongolia, which will provide training services for tanneries, support the design and the implementation of research and development services from the university according to the specific needs of the companies, and also implement research on the use environmentally friendly technologies for tanning raw materials and recycling of collagen-containing waste.
