Workshop on successful industrial exploitation of FoF project results

17 February 2016-Room Einstein, Diamant Building (Brussels)

Organised by EFFRA through the FoF‐Impact CSA project in cooperation with the Co‐FACTOR CSA. With contributions from the EFFECTIVE, FOCUS and FOFAM CSAs.

FoF-Impact will integrate, in one comprehensive and service‐oriented package, a set of tools and measures (guidelines, technology transfer tools and market uptake mechanisms i.e. a toolkit) in support of exploitation of project results generated by the FoF PPP.

Aim of the Workshop: The sustainable fine‐tuning and deployment of the toolkit as a whole requires that the identification and characterisation of initiatives and services that are relevant to the successful industrial exploitation of FoF projects should be a continuous activity.

The toolkit should aim at reinforcing the deployment of existing and emerging services, such as the Exploitation Support Seminars, the European IPR Helpdesk, the Enterprise Europe Network, the Innovation Radar, etc. Obtaining a clear vision on how the toolkit will operate in the future, within the context of existing services and with potential extension through recently developed services, is the main objective of the workshop.

Therefore we kindly invite you to attend and to contribute to this workshop.
