Valorization: Smart Synthesis Tools

Valorization: Smart Synthesis Tools

This valorization will promote the transfer of knowledge on Synthesis Technology towards the industry. Companies will get more insight in a new technique which supports design processes.

An active approach is chosen:

·

Contact by phone

·

Mailing

·

Company presentations

·

Workshops

This is supported with the necessary promotion material, varying from folders to a website.

Within the valorization process the communication between researchers and business works in both ways. Companies are provided with knowledge about the state-of-the-art in this field. The researchers get more insight in the practical applicability of their findings.

Methods are developed that enables a quick scan of the design process. The scan will give answers to the questions:

·

Is synthesis applicable?

·

What profit does it yield?

Also new applicabilities are identified.

A point wise recapitulation of the goals:

·

Create Synthesis Technology Awareness

o

Business knows the existents of synthesis and the possibilities & advantages

·

Market Insight

o

Market Size and Location

o

What are the needs, demands and possibilities for synthesis

o

Willingness towards Products and/or Research

·

Develop Methods for identification

o

Quick scanning for synthesis technology possibilities

o

Cost/Profit calculation synthesis technology

The valorization project will be performed from the end of 2008 until the first half of 2009, by Marco Olthof
