On September 2020  was held a meeting with Andrea Di Anselmo, META Group (www.meta-group.com) which referred to Service 1 - Module C - Exploitation Strategy Seminar (ESS). The service provided guidance and training to improve the existing project strategies of projects towards effective exploitation of key exploitable results. The exploitation strategy was improved the following aspects: review of the Key Exploitable Results of the project; revise, complement and clarify existing exploitation plans of project results and/or outline exploitation paths of results; techniques to identify all relevant stakeholders in the exploitation value chain; support to perform a risk analysis related to the exploitation of results. The two days seminar were held on December 2020.

The aim of this service was to strengthen the capacity of projects in using their research results enhancing partners’ capacity to improve their exploitation strategy.
Project activities and the research done or to be done are considered in terms of Key Exploitable Results (KERs). KERs are results whose use has commercial and/or societal significance. The results selected for the discussion during the service were analysed from a viewpoint which is exploitation only and considering how they will be used to mobilise, after the end of the project, impact.

This is the customer demand or societal needs/user point of view. The service and the virtual exploitation strategy seminar (ESS) provided the participants with the opportunity to work on:
1) the identification/grouping of key exploitable results;
2) the first definition of the related use mode;
3) the identification and mapping of risks related to the exploitation;
4) follow-up actions.
