His expertise covers strategic planning, negotiations, establishment of new co-operations, business development.

Panel Contribution:

Commercialization of project results is an essential issue for public research organizations as well as for businesses. It is very important to set up a commercialization strategy and a commercialization roadmap. The strategy should include issues related to IPR, decision about own production and/or licencing out, business model, etc. The roadmap should cover the necessary resources for achieving market entry. It is a very complex process and many inventions fail to reach the market. Proper planning could increase the probability of successful commercialization.
