Periodic Reporting for period 2 - UTILE (The EU-HEALTH INNOVATION MARKETPLACE, the valorization platform for (FP7 Health and H2020 SC1) research results)
Reporting period: 2018-07-01 to 2019-12-31
The UTILE website provides access to tools and training for projects that would like to get assistance in the valorisation process. The first training event already took place in Sophia, inviting projects from Low Performing Countries in the east of Europe. Preparations for a second workshop in October are currently taking place.
In addition, the architecture to launch the marketplace with the evaluation data is going through final stages of developement and will be accessible through the website via a special URL.
Furthermore, the first steps towards the sustainability plan of UTILE have been executed. An analysis of similar platforms has been made to determine their strengths and weaknesses, as well as possible appropriate business models for UTILE.
Finally, dissemination materials have been created and communication activities have been performed to inform the public and create awareness among the UTILE target groups. UTILE partners have regularly visited conferences and have used their (social) networks to increase UTILE’s awareness.
