This deliverable of the CS-AWARE project is the first in an iterative series of three deliverables regarding the dissemination, exploitation and commercialization actions during the project lifetime. The following two deliverables will constitute updated versions of this first iteration and will be produced at month 18 (version 2) and month 36 (version 3) of the project’s lifecycle. Based upon the technology challenges and future market findings this version will be updated accordingly and commercialisation plans may be subject to variations or changes, depending on market needs and respective requirements.
The current deliverable consists of four principle chapters: A short introduction, a dissemination plan & relevant actions, a commercialization & exploitation analysis, followed lastly by some suggestions on future work. The document begins by presenting some early on dissemination activities (project website, social media presence and training materials for the CS-AWARE project) and then focuses on designing and consolidating the commercialization and exploitation analysis. On the dissemination side, it outlines the project website updates, the rationale and the type of information content that can be found on it, with selected screenshots of some pages illustrating the changes. It also provides an update on the various social media accounts the project is using, to assist with dissemination. With regards to exploitation and dissemination, this deliverable looks into the developed technology, then into the cyber-security industry and the market opportunity, examines practices of IP Policy and Strategies, and finally proposes the best licensing, revenue and commercialization path approaches This part will be strongly developed during the second and third year of the project, while during the first year, will consolidate the main trajectory and approach.
