SerIoT Exploitation Strategy
This page summarizes the core elements of the SerIoT Exploitation Strategy which is built on some key elements:
Following these principles and methodology (see the Figure below), the project has established a smooth path to include innovative research results into products and services, to feed them into further research or development activities, and to employ them for the creation of new business.
SerIoT IPR Management
The management of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) is a fundamental prerequisite for successful exploitation and maximum impact of the innovative solutions and the protection of key results generated within the SerIoT collaborative research project.
The final exploitation plan will release the final version of the SerIoT items with exploitation potential, and the considerations about the IPR management, taking into account the chosen licenses for the software developments and the IPR regulations covered for the SerIoT Consortium Agreement for this purpose.
Business Models Development
Along the three-years project, we have explored what are the most extended possibilities for the new application fields which have been identified for SerIoT, and different business models have been identified for the project, based on market willingness.
This research has been useful to gain knowledge about the existing options in the market, that we need to adapt to the specific features of SerIoT results.
The final exploitation plan will includespecific business models that will be developed to illustrate how SerIoT could make profit in case of a business opportunity, according to the final selection of exploitable items with the highest potential to go to market.
Exploitation in the scope of SerIoT refers to the use of project results distinguishing mainly two lines of action:
The exploitation of SerIoT solution is foreseen as an activity led by different partners, with a number of exploitation agreements with the owners of the necessary components for a given deployment of a specific SerIoT configuration. This scheme may be used both in the case of the operation of a SerIoT-based service that could be potentially established, or in the case of a partner identifying a business opportunity that would require a subset of the SerIoT components.
Adoption Roadmap and Sustainability
The adoption roadmap establishes how to overcome barriers and obstacles to ensure results will be used by stakeholders, while sustainability determines how they will be available in long-term so they can be used. The adoption roadmap will encompass the activities to further develop the project outcomes to bring project results to the market.
This information will be provided in the final exploitation plan of the project, forecasted by April 2021.
