D3.4 Report on the validation of EU online service delivery

Report on the validation of EU online service delivery. we will analyse data, collected during pilots, to gain insights that can be used in product development, business and commercialisation plans. Along with all automated data that we will receive for every transaction, we will also gather data by other channels to support our R&D, operations and services.

D4.3 Commercial impact assessment

We will continuously analyse the data related to Hub (deployed as trials) usage and functionality. This analysis will help us to quantify our business around each Hub. We will use statistical analysis techniques. The output of each Hub data will assist us to check our decision criteria regarding the location of the Hub and operation efficiency, which will be a guideline for further Hub deployment. This will be done regularly even after project completion, considering we will be deploying Hub throughout the year. We will also take initiatives to launch our product in Bangladesh and Pakistan

D6.1 Dissemination and communication plan

To widely disseminate the project concept, development, and results to general public, scientific community and industry stakeholders, we will be using the following effective communication means and strategies: ▪ Creation of a project D&C-P, outlining the process of dissemination for the REACH Project including the development of supportive communication tools; ▪ Development of a project brand identity to reinforce the project’s external image, as well as setup and maintenance of a user friendly REACH project website. The website will be continuously updated with the latest organised or attended events, published papers and the technical results. It will also have the facility for feedback; ▪ Creation and maintenance of an emails distribution list targeting relevant stakeholders, such as scientific communities, regulatory bodies, MNOs, NGOs and enclosure manufacturers etc., to distribute e-newsletters; ▪ Preparation of brochures and leaflets explaining our technology and make these available at industry events; ▪ Preparation of open access scientific publications and articles in peer-reviewed academic journals.

D6.4 Exploitation and sustainability plan

In order to ensure sustainable use of project results, we will formalise our current exploitation plan at the early project stages and will continuously update. From the beginning of the project, specific attention will be given to the protection and exploitation of IP of results derived from project activities. The following preliminary exploitation activities are planned: a) We will develop a detailed IPR strategy that will take all background IPR owned by BuffaloGrid into consideration to ensure that we can effectively exploit the project foreground IP on a Pan-European scale. This involves investigating several suitable methods to protect different project results and potentially apply for patents, design rights or copyright if/when appropriate. We are aiming to have relevant outline patents in place before full exploitation at the end of the project. b) The major activities to developing a strong and effective marketing strategy include: ▪ target customers with effective marketing activities that specifically addresses their particular needs; ▪ develop suitable advertising, awareness building and promotional plans; and ▪ develop a detailed commercialization plan to exploit the outcomes of the project

D6.2 Brochures and leaflets

The D&E Manager will be in liaison with the coordinator to advise and provide support to activities to raise awareness and to promote the projects visibility, especially for relevant stakeholders. The following activities are planned: ▪ Presentation of the project and its outcomes to relevant stakeholders at national and international conferences on resource and cost efficient Hub manufacturing process; ▪ Participation in common Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) dissemination activities: which covers resources to contribute, upon request by the EASME, to common dissemination activities to increase synergies and visibility of H2020 supported actions; ▪ Onsite workshops and group discussions among the BuffaloGrid agents; ▪ Organisation of press conferences with journalists for widespread dissemination of the project results; ▪ Organisation of a final dissemination conference with all partners to disseminate the project results to the scientific community, regulatory bodies, industry stakeholders and the public.

EoL, LCA and LCC Analysis

We will perform following tasks for environmental impact assessment. Control the End of Life (EoL) – Each Hub is designed with 5Rs in mind: remanufacturing, repurposing, reuse, repair, and recycling. In this task, we will investigate to have more control on these 5Rs. We will develop innovative software to control and validate the EOL of each component. Life Cycle Costing (LCC) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) analyses – We will validate environmental benefits and resource & cost efficient manufacturing potential of BuffaloGrid Hub technology. Keeping budgetary and time constraint in consideration, we will perform two sets of comparative LCA and LCC studies. To perform LCA study, we will use SimaPro LCA software in assessment using cradle-to-grave life cycle approach. Moreover, we will follow the International Reference Life Cycle Data System (ILCD) Handbook and General guide for Life Cycle Assessment developed by EC (JRC-IES). ILCD handbook is based on and conforms to the ISO 14040 and 14044 standards on LCA.

D4.2 Social impact assessment

Considering a number of influential social impacts of our project, we have planned to perform extensive social survey in several villages at Karnataka and Bihar where we have been performing and will perform extensive social survey to examine customer’s satisfaction, willingness to pay, increase in income and social security, job creation, increase in social coherence. We will establish baseline criteria (to measure improvement in education) and implementation options in collaboration with NGO partners and local trust networks. The outcome of the social survey will be used to improve and modify our commercialisation plan, and to promote our business in future

D4.4 Health impact assessment

Once we have the e-health services running, we will identify the number of patients we will be treating through our hub. Then from collaborations, such as with PEEK, we expect to be able to generate digital medical profiles of our patients and keep track of the patients’ improvement.
