WORK PACKAGE 6: EXPLOITATION

Aims and objectives

The exploitation of the results of the project is of major importance as this will be determinant for the efficiency of the project at all. In other words, this project will lose its objective if its results are not exploited in the right way. To do so, a series of tools developed and used during the project lifetime will be used like the establishment of a communication flow which will outlast the project.

 

The need for Exploitation is motivated by the need to create a (sustainable) exploitation plan that demonstrates the viability of the results of the project. It will address both technical/social viability as well as financial sustainability, which focus on the economic aspects of the exploitation, and provides insight into the financial viability of the defined strategy, both for the consortium as well as for the partners individually.

 

The exploitation work package will look specifically at ways of maximising the mainstreaming and multiplication of findings, recommendations, products and results. This will be mainly achieved by the development of an exploitation plan which will guarantee maximum impact of the project activities and results. The plan will analyse the business case for developing the outcomes and products of the project in a commercially viable way, considering the needs and aspirations of each partner organisation. It will include a brief overview of the social and economic sustainability of the cooperation beyond the project life time. A good economic sustainability plan enables to coordinate efforts, track progress and focus energies on the highest priority activities. Its development includes analysis on how to organise the possible future cooperation necessary for the viability of the results over time. Moreover, it will analyse the expected social impact and economic benefits of project products, considering existing products and competition. The partnership will also identify potential target markets, alliances and business partners, exploring appropriate channels and routes to market.

 

The second extremely important deliverable of this work package will be the elaboration of a feasibility study undertaken by an external organization for the creation of an Innovation Center.
