Since its launch in 2020, Horizon Results Booster has grown rapidly, helping more users maximise the impact of their research results.
Horizon Results Booster has reached a new milestone: 400 complete services provided! Thanks to Horizon Results Booster, recipients of EU funding can learn how to significantly increase the impact of their research results. The European Commission supported the initiative. HRB started in 2020 to train researchers on how to develop a business plan, exploit a research result or launch their project to market.
“Progress of knowledge is essential for any community. This public investment programmes transform results into benefits for society. They help to maximize the social, economic, technological, and scientific value of public funding. Definitely, it is a must”, explained Andrea Di Anselmo, senior expert at Horizon Results Booster and META Group’s President. “This transformation is only possible if we use results. Moving out of the R&D dimension and into innovation that reaches the market”, he added.
Horizon Results Booster’s innovative system for providing support enables researchers to identify a profitable business model for their project. Thus, the package provides an integrated view of a practical portfolio dissemination plan, offers guidance to improve the exploitation strategy, develops an effective business plan and, finally, brings the results closer to the market.
About Horizon Results Booster
Horizon Results Booster offers three main streams of support. The Portfolio Dissemination & Exploitation Strategy package is divided into three further services: Modules A and B aim to build greater capacity to disseminate research results, while Module C intends to increase the exploitation potential of a project. Next, Business Plan Development helps beneficiaries to develop a business strategy including an analysis of the market and competitors. Finally, Go To Market supports the beneficiary by preparing the product for commercialisation.
The Portfolio Dissemination & Exploitation Strategy service is behind of almost 75% of the 400 completed services. Thus, 102 services belong to Module A; 32 to Module B; and 161 to Module C. On top of that, beneficiaries benefited from Business Plan Development services 69 times. In other hand, Go To Market services helped on 27 occasions. Through Horizon Results Booster, 9 EU Dissemination and Exploitation reports were also completed, providing the analysis of the D&I clusters.
Here is an overview of the organizations reached from the beginning of the project.
Achieving market impact and long-term sustainability depends on effective and impactful dissemination and exploitation strategies and actions. This is why it is essential to dedicate time and effort to exploitation and assimilation of research results. Not to mention that building from a poorly-laid foundation leads to disaster.
