A key objective of publicly-funded research is that it should lead to the exploitation of results, which goes one step further than the mere production and dissemination of new scientific knowledge. Such an approach is essential to tackle the "European paradox", not to mention the Treaty objective of strengthening the scientific and technological bases of Community industry while encouraging it to become more competitive at international level.
Exploitation is often the most direct way of gaining socio-economic benefits such as new products/services, jobs or companies. However, dissemination of research and development (R&D) results is equally important in that it "fuels" further research and thus, indirectly, the exploitation of additional results.
