Socio-economic benefits is an essential key to promote and foster competitiveness in the framework of the H2020 programme. Indeed, the SensMat project integrates actions on dissemination and exploitation activities within a dedicated work package. These activities will quantify and evaluate the impact expected from the project.
The Key Exploitable Results (KERs) methodology is used, in-line with recommendations of H2020 guidelines.
With all information obtained within this work, partners will be able to identify which is the more exploitable KER to develop a common business plan. In addition, they will have a global view of what the target market, potential competitors in the sector, Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) barriers and major risks are, among other aspects.
Finally, this methodology provides a guide to define an action list which should be followed to achieve the new business goals. These actions will be reflected in a road-map that also describes the linkages between them.
In addition, SensMat aims to define a parallel and complementary approach to evaluate the impact generated by the “indirect values”. This activity will make partners aware of other potential benefits, side needs coming from the feedback of future end-users of developed solutions and service. The main idea is to not consider the end-user in a passive role but to involve them in the add-value creation by exploiting opportunities jointly. This “clustering” aims to support a new approach on the technology evaluation within actual and future paradigms, in order to combine different and cross-sectorial results that share the same scope to facilitate and maximize the overall impact, additional added value, better exploitation and sectorial competitiveness.
