Work Package 5 assesses the current market situation in the partner countries and Europe with the aim to develop economically sustainable business models for the DISCOVER service. This includes IPR arrangements.
Work package objectives for period one (M1-M12)
The objectives for period 1 were to conduct a market assessment and initiate discussion with all partners about the DISCOVER service and its selling points.
Work package objectives for period two (M13-M24)
The objectives for period 2 were to build on the initial market assessment and explore and develop potential business models for sustaining and mainstreaming the DISCOVER service. WP5 relies on input from WP2 and WP4 directly interacting with the pilot sites.
Work package objectives for period three (M25-M36)
The objectives for period 3 were to refine the business models created in period 2 moving the four pilot sites towards sustainable service delivery with a business plan at the end of year 3. This included development of the IPR Strategy for future use, re-use and commercialisation of the DISCOVER assets. WP5 relies on input from WP2 and WP4 directly interacting with the pilot sites.
