Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

The ‘Sensing Anywhere IIoT Ultra-Energy Efficient-KUNAK’ (Kunak) Project led by Green Wave Technologies, S.L., was approved within the call for SME Instrument H2020, ICT-37-2015-1 Topic: Open Breakthrough Innovation Scheme, Call 2015-09-17.
The project’s main objectives were the following:
1) Market research to identify key segments to know the needs, size, characteristics, value chain, and agents with whom to establish strategic alliances. The validity of the marketing model chosen (specialized engineering firms) will be checked and agreements made with at least three of these firms, on an international platform, will be signed.
2) Design of the business model and of the commercial, industrial and marketing strategy for internationalization
3) Development of the strategy for protecting intellectual property
4) Development of the Business Plan.

Finally, through Activity No. 3, the road map strategy for the technology and intellectual property protection has been designed. Activity No. 4 has allowed the company to have a complete Business Plan.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

"From a technological point of view, the project has proven in multiple meetings with customers, potential customers, employees, partners, engineers, operating pilots, benchmarking with competitors, etc. that there is a technologically advanced solution, unique in its category internationally. The battery of R&D+i projects designed in the "technological and product-market road map" currently underway, will allow the company to undergo a significant advance in this technological singularity. The company has obtained technical success in all developments and targets set for the development of the core technology, and in all the pilots, concept tests and prototypes designed and tested.

Kunak's management team expects to prove that Kunak Technologies will soon be an internationally recognized company in the field of the IIoT technology, innovation and services in various vertical segments, and it will have generated a significant number of jobs, as well as important economic surpluses."
