PART B: VALORISATION PLAN

SECTION I: ESTIMATION OF COSTS

 

1

Taking into account the rest of the cost evaluation please provide an overall estimation of the total costs for full deployment/production of the R & D result.
… in terms of IPR protection
The cost for IPR at international level is about 6.000 € 
…in terms of product development
A commitment of 8 months is envisaged to port the algorithm to a Linux kernel and to validate it in the form of a prototype of software router. The needed resources are currently allocated.The best solution is a team of 2 persons for the duration of 8 months.

Other costs for product development are parts of electronic equipments.

 

…in terms of mass production
Not relevant 

 

… in terms of marketing
Not applicable

SECTION 2: QUALITATIVE FACTORS

 

3

Dimension of identified target groups
Internet and contents providers, as Google (or similar), telecom companies.Producers as CISCO and Juniper networks and as WYATTA (router software)

 

 

4

Evaluation of financial Risks for R&D result
The financial risks are extremely low because the topic of router software allows however interesting scientific results. 

SECTION 3: IDENTIFICATION OF FINANCING SOURCES

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

1. …ICT funds

 

 

2. National Funding

1. …PRIN

 

 

3. Private funding

1. …Private firm

 

 

4. Other

INNOVACTORS start up

 

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)…
REBOOK core is already developed, because a prototype has been just tested by emulation of a real system. The current stage of development is near to a definitive release.The final objective is the dynamic resource booking: the comparison with other solutions (as hardware routers) seems to give better results.

The R&D result considered is going to be integrated in a platform similar to a commercial product, a software router. In other words, the running activities are devoted to test the algorithm in a more realistic fashion.

Given the previous experience and the good definition of the target, the level of confidence about feasibility is considered good.

 

 

Decision of evaluation (Please keep only the appropriate)

  • The R&D has a high potential of exploitation
