You have just obtained some funds (FP7, H2020…) for your research projects. Now, it is necessary to ensure good coordination in addition to all your other tasks.
Whether you are a researcher or a start-up partner, your technology is unique and there are strong reasons to believe that it could be applied in numerous industrial sectors. The key-questions are: who are my potential customers and how to target them?
You are looking to improve your products and are facing some technical issues. New materials, smart sensors, efficient energy sources… What are the best solutions and how do you identify the most relevant partners?
Your ecosystem is full of specific competencies and high-end instruments. To structure this ecosystem is one of your priorities. Have you ever considered the benefits of a dedicated professional networking tool?
Picture yourself in five years, what will be the impacts of nanotechnology on your company? Technology, market, EHS, regulation: what will be your winning strategy?
You are facing the arrival of complex regulations difficult to fully comprehend. You want to adopt the EHS best practices. You lack time to tackle these challenges that you consider crucial for the development and the sustainability of your business.
Your research project probably involves several academic and industrial partners located in different countries. As a project coordinator, you want to set up meetings, monitor tasks progress and financial resources allocation and also to regularly chase up your partners. Have you ever thought about entrusting these non-scientific activities to someone who knows how research is done?
Taking your specific needs into account, we offer a collaborative website to allow you to save time and get back to what matters. All the relevant information (messages, documents, partners contacts…) of your project is centralized and accessible to users with specific access. The project coordination and the activity of the whole consortium are simplified.
Your technology is on the verge of being developed within a company and can affect lots of different industrial sectors. The applications are so diverse that you do not know where to begin. You begin to ask yourself how should we position our company to benefit from our competitive advantages?
You want to develop your sales and acquire your first client references: what is your approach to identify, target and convince these first customers? A targeted market study will help you to start the right way.
You are looking for innovative technological solutions which will improve the performance of your products. You want to add new functions to your products, such as making them smarter in order to open new markets or try a new business model.
You are willing to identify the optimal solutions by conducting an in-depth analysis of the different technologies available on the market. What are their respective technology readiness level? How to reach the best compromise between added value and cost of integration? How to identify your partners to ensure the success of your innovation?
Your ecosystem involves research centers, start-ups, industries, technology platforms and universities. To favor synergies between these actors is one of your priorities. You also want to improve the visibility of this ecosystem towards interested third parties. How do you tackle these challenges?
To answer this question, you imagine a map of your most valuable resources (specific competencies, high-end instruments…). The creation of a professional network allowing your collaborators to identify these resources in a few clicks constitutes a practical solution.
Whether you are a beginner or a veteran in nanotechnology, you foresee that you can not steer clear of this technological revolution. Thus, you want to measure short, mid and long terms impacts on your organization. You think that your strategy should be global involving technology, market, EHS and regulation.
To do so, your wish is to have a clear vision of the involved stakeholders, of the main applications under development and of the greatest tendencies of your sector. In addition, you imagine reviewing on-going research projects (technological frontier) and conducting bibliometric studies (patents and publications). Within this perspective, you will be able to define your innovation strategy with nanotechnology.
You see new regulations on the horizon at the national and international level. You know that the coexistence of different definitions relative to nanotechnology complicates the interpretation of official documents. How should you comply with these regulations?
You want to implement the EHS best practices to ensure a durable development for your business. How to protect your employees? How to minimize your environmental impact?
Feel free to contact us if you have any specific request. We will answer you as promptly as possible.
