Within Horizon 2020, EURICE has been successfully involved in the coordination of 25 collaborative projects. Our portfolio ranks from collaborative projects in the field of experimental research (TRL 2-4) up to demonstration and technology validation projects in an operational environment (TRL 5-8). According to the most recent Horizon 2020 monitoring report published in 2016, EURICE belongs to the Top 3 of SMEs in Europe regarding the number of signed Horizon 2020 agreements.
In order to pave the way for successful project exploitation, they support consortia in identifying, capturing, protecting and nurturing the Intellectual Property (IP) generated in research collaborations. Thus, Eurice accompanies researchers and innovative companies through the entire life cycle of a project – from the first idea to successful project completion – and beyond. In APRICOT, EURICE will - together with the coordinator and industrial partners – ensure the synthesis of the results from work packages, and support innovation-related activities such as dissemination and exploitation of results, to maximise project impact. EURICE will provide advice concerning Horizon 2020-specific rules and regulations regarding Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)-issues to all partners throughout the project. Together with all partners, EURICE will ensure coherent external communication of the project and its results towards relevant target groups.
