Plan for the Exploitation and Dissemination of Results (PEDR)

The purpose of the PEDR is to ensure that MARMOR’s results are widely published and available through open access according to standards following FAIR principles.

Transfer Department of each partner will be involved to ensure exploitation of results with high innovation potential in new products, processes or services. Results protection could be performed through: patent, trademark, industrial design, copyright, trade-secret or know-how, or confidentiality agreements. The intellectual property and the issues on the ownership of results will be addressed within a consortium agreement.

MARMOR’s PEDR will be tailored to define how research results will be implemented and how they will impact on the scientific community, on future market developments and policy making. The PDER will be updated during the implementation of the project.

The key target groups for dissemination and exploitation will include:

  • the scientific and academic community, including early stage researchers, marine observation infrastructure managers at national and European level;
  • relevant industries;
  • policy makers and the general public.

Key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure project impact will include numbers of highly ranked scientific publications, stakeholders engaged, conference presentations, intellectual property cases and patents, companies engaged, DOI usage and data download, ‘hits’ to the MARMOR website and social media accounts.
