Support Services for Exploitation of Research Results (SSERR)

At the occasion of EUSEW, flyers were distributed by the EC reminding about the special service launched last year in order to help completed and ongoing research projects in the field of energy to breach the gap between research to business by accompanying them in the exploitation of their research results.
 
The exploitation of research results is truly vital for research projects, as it can help them to develop, create and market a product (or process). The exploitation of results will lead to innovation and therefore creates businesses and jobs, increase knowledge and welfare: it is directly linked to the objectives of the EU.
 
At the same time, exploitation touches on the protection of intellectual properties of the project partners and requires a careful legal treatment. This is why the DG Research and Innovation proposes to offer on-demand services to interested projects, via the Support Services for Exploitation of Research and Results.
 
The SSERR help researchers to: identify their potentially exploitable results and assist in their exploitation and protection, develop a business plan and identify potential risks and obstacles, present their exploitable results to key actors such as investors or business partners, etc.
 
You can request access to the SSERR at any time during the project’s lifecycle, even after the project has been completed.

You can find more information about this service at sserr.meta-group.com, or contact RTD-ENERGY-SSERR@ec.europa.eu
