SECTION 3: FINAL EVALUATION

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)…
PPETP is a protocol that allows to do video streaming to a large number of users, with a limited burden for the video provider. The basic idea is that each user “helps” the provider by re-sending the video data to other users. In this way the provider just needs to “seed” a subset of the users and the network will take care of the data distribution by itself.

Video streaming has an interesting potential for the next future, because there are various subjects interested to develop activities in the sector as prosumers, tv producers, internet contents producers.

The future step for PPETP is the realization of a spin off for the management of the service, taking rights into the new firm.

 

 

 

Decision of evaluation (Please keep only the appropriate)

  • The R&D has a high potential of exploitation
