In Horizon 2020 and other funding schemes, all project partners are expected to foster the exploitation of their results. As an exploitation partner in numerous EU projects we plan and implement activities focused on the effective use of project results. Our services include:

Managing exploitation

Data management: accelopment supports the creation of a data management plan specific to your project and in line with the project’s open access strategy.

Innovation and knowledge/IP management: Proper management of new knowledge/IP is an important factor for successful exploitation. During the project implementation, we assist the Innovation or IP Manager in fulfilling related tasks.

Stakeholder-oriented measures

Stakeholder mapping: We assist you in identifying important stakeholder groups and subsequently plan an engagement strategy for future cooperation.

End-user events: We foster the engagement of potential end-users by organising meetings, demonstrations and other events.

Promotional measures: We support you in raising public awareness by providing promotional material such as factsheets, presentations, and online demonstrators or visualisations.

Market-oriented evaluation

Market analysis: Knowledge about the market environment is an essential foundation for future exploitation activities. We support you in evaluating your internal and external environment, for example by providing tools for PESTLE and SWOT analyses or conducting interviews with experts.

Business model: Strong business models are in the centre of each exploitation strategy. We help you identify exploitable outcomes, develop suitable business models and plan the path-to-market.

Planning for the life after

Exploitation roadmap: Necessary measures for facilitating the use of results after the projects lifetime should be implemented early enough. This includes agreements on the use of data and other knowledge, making plans for follow-up R&D, organising meetings with potential end-users or supporting the promotion of interim project results to prospective development partners.

Funding opportunities: We support all project partners interested in follow-up projects and other relevant research and innovation to find suitable funding schemes through our strategic grant planning service. We also facilitate applications of consortia or a group of partners for future grants as part of the project.
