The VITALISE Commercialisation Bootcamp will focus on how to exploit research results and turn them into a product or service. We will use a practical tool – specially adapted for living lab-based research – to judge the innovation potential of research elements. Basic principles of business building, strategy and tactics for commercialization,and appropriate paths to market will also be covered. We will use real-life startup case studies to illustrate the various factors involved in taking a research product into the market.

Who should attend. The bootcamp is designed for idea owners, coaches, managers, startups, and researchers seeking to exploit their research results, with the aim of assessing the innovation readiness and maturity of projects.

Aim of the bootcamp. The Bootcamp will introduce tools (the Innovation Radar and the KTH Innovation Readiness Level TM Model) for conducting a reality check and define more objectively the progress of innovative projects towards commercialization.

  • How to judge the innovative and commercial potential of research- based results
  • Some basics of market entry and competitive analysis
  • How to allocate suitable resources to control and guide the innovation process

It will be followed by a hands-on exercise, where participants will have the opportunity to test the tools for their own projects, or a using a test case provided by the facilitator. Participants will be guided through the evaluation process to learn how to assess the maturity and current development status of projects, including those supported by Living Labs.
