We are experts in designing Dissemination and Exploitation plans for scientific and technological projects and we see an exciting opportunity in the European Commission programme, Horizon 2020. This programme will fund all the stages in the innovation process, from the basic research to the marketed product, that is, the whole lifecycle of the process, including marketing. What is interesting is that this programme will complement other measures which will define the European Research Area by 2014 aimed at creating a single European market for knowledge, research and innovation where the dissemination and exploitation of results will play a fundamental role.
