4 Evaluation of financial Risks for R&D result

The R&D result is very promising. The experiments confirmed the theory and there are clear and solvable tasks to achieve the mass production. The risk is the market. Although it is a huge market if we regard the number of infections in the third world, the availability of it by a newly established small company is difficult.






After evaluating all the above mentioned criteria, please tick the best financing source for the achievement of R&D result (i.e. own capitals, banking credits, venture capital, business angels, etc)


1. European Funding

Define relevance of the product with the following potential funding sources and comment






2. National Funding
1. GOP-2011-1.1.1…(Market oriented innovation,   40 – 500 million HUF available for a project)


3. Private funding
1. For co-financing the project (an investment of HUF 100 million would be necessary)


4. Other


It is requested a final evaluation considering the funding opportunities you believe most suitable for the exploitation of the R&D result, considering the possibility of the creation of a spin-off, further research, in particular, a cost/benefit analysis and a financial projection for the R&D result, type of collaboration identified (i.e. Licensing Agreement, Technical Cooperation, Joint Venture, Manufacturing Agreement, Commercial Agreement with Technical Assistance, Creation of a spin-off, Joint further development)…

Over 2 billions of people, 1/3 of the present human population, are infected by M. tuberculosis and over 8 millions of people develop active tuberculosis annually.

For decades, much of the industrialized world thought TB was defeated, and investment in TB R & D essentially dried up. The drugs, vaccine, and diagnostics used to fight TB were antiquated, slow, and ineffective, and they were being implemented in the context of weak health systems.

This new research result can be the base of a spin-off company (it is the intention of the project owner too) and this company can penetrate to this huge market if acts fast enough. It requires an investor and a strong national funding from GOP.1.1.1. to start with adequate capital. The conditions with the university background are good enough to start the activity with an experimental production.

A slower and therefore more risky solution is the two-steps creation of the deal. A spin-off company is necessary in this case too, but with a smaller amount of capital, and with a smaller national funding. If the small scale production is successful then investors can enter or the company can be sold for investors.



Decision of evaluation (Please keep only the appropriate)

  • The R&D has a high potential of exploitation
