How to address exploitation issues with the support of the European Commission?

The Innovation Platform is an instrument specifically created for EC projects funded by the Industrial Technologies Programme (Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and New Production Technologies – NMP) to address non-technological exploitation issues.

It is an online tool designed as an interface to information and services provided by the European Commission and its partners.

The Innovation Platform also offers NMP projects a series of tailored and free services, provided by innovation experts (ESIC2) who can help projects during the whole project lifecycle: (prior authorisation from the EC project officer is required)

Project Risk Analysis (PRA) to identify the risks and potential obstacles to the future exploitation of project results.

Exploitation Strategy Seminars (ESS) to brainstorm on how a consortium can address the risks and potential obstacles identified in the PRA.

Business plan development service to assist partners with this crucial step towards exploitation.

Assistance for patenting to support the partners with the writing, filing and legal follow-up of patents.

Assistance for standardisation to help partners to exploit project results that can benefit from the development of standards.
