  10. 10. 7. Gateway to Polish S&T• Identification of competences How we work and resources of the Polish R&D sector (not limited to TPF members) related One R&D work contract to a particular research topic of interest Partner / The Technology Partners to a potential Partner/Client Client Foundation• Quick preparation of the scheme of cooperation with selected Polish RTOs• Contact point in Poland, enabling R&D work Back-to-back contracts access to and cooperation with a large part of Polish R&D sector• On-site project management and coordination – important in case of multidisciplinary projects R&D R&D involving several institutes Inst.1 Inst.2• Streamlining of Partners’/Clients’ internal administration work – a single contractual partner through which it is possible to cooperate with many InstitutesDr Tomasz Kosmider Seminar „Clusters as a Tool for Innovation in Europe”TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS Foundation Helsinki, 11 June 2012
  11. 11. 8. Selected Recent Projects • MAAXIMUS – „More Affordable Aircraft Structure Lifecycle through Extended, Integrated & Mature Numerical Sizing” – Integrated Project, EU FP7 [2008-] • ELECTRICAL – „Novel Aeronautical Multifunctional Composite Structures with Bulk Electrical Conductivity and Self-Sensing Capabilities” – Small or Medium-scale Focused Research Project, EU FP7 [2010-] • CANNAPE – „Canadian Networking Aeronautics Project for Europe” – Co-ordination and Support Action (Supporting), EU FP7 [2011-] • SARISTU – “Smart Intelligent Aircraft Structures” – Collaborative Project, EU FP7 [2011-] • ALFA III – „New Alloys Type 7xxx Having Ultra-Fine Grain Structure” (ordered by AIRBUS) [2007] • ELECTROPOL – „Electro-Conductive Polymer Matrix Composites with Improved Mechanical Properties” (ordered by AIRBUS) [2007-2008] • FAST-AA – „Functional and Advanced Surface Treatments of 2xxx Aluminium Alloys” (ordered by AIRBUS) [2007-2008] • „Fabrication of dielectric thin films with high dielectric constant” (ordered by SOLVAY) [2008-2009]Dr Tomasz Kosmider Seminar „Clusters as a Tool for Innovation in Europe”TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS Foundation Helsinki, 11 June 2012
  12. 12. 8. Selected Recent ProjectsThe Database Information Platform for Effective Use of Research Results Project- Innovative Economy Operational Programme, financing from Structural Funds• The Open Innovation concept and technology transfer initiatives point to interdisciplinary consortia as the main locus of innovation development and underline the need for appropriate communication between research and industrial partners at every stage of the research process. The best use of knowledge and support for innovation in an interdisciplinary consortium requires a uniform system of knowledge transfer and management.• The objective of the project was to develop and implement a tool allowing a scientific research consortium to achieve synergy through the joint use of complementary knowledge and organisational resources and equipment.• The Information Platform created within the project enables the management of knowledge and highly complex R&D projects taking into account the requirements of industry relating to cooperation with research organisations. This required the design and implementation of a dedicated information system increasing R&D process effectiveness, supporting network cooperation between R&D organisations and facilitating the acquisition of industrial and research partners.Dr Tomasz Kosmider Seminar „Clusters as a Tool for Innovation in Europe”TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS Foundation Helsinki, 11 June 2012
  13. 13. 8. Selected Recent ProjectsThe Database Information Platform for Effective Use of Research Results Project- Innovative Economy Operational Programme, financing from Structural Funds• The project is being carried out by TPF and 10 R&D institutes representing 1500 scientists and executing 900 R&D projects annually.• The Platform consists of the following key elements: (1) databases of research results, information on technical infrastructure resources, HR, scientific knowledge databases, research work roadmap; (2) an internal information portal supporting exchange of information between the partners; (3) an external information portal intended for other organisations – research networks and industrial partners.• By supporting the formation of multidisciplinary research teams, the system enables the creation of a social network of research workers. All registered Platform users possess their own profiles presenting their characteristics (personal data, education, competencies, interests, areas of current research activity, publications, etc.). The system enables viewing profiles and searching for people according to specific characteristics, communicating with them, as well as creating shared workgroups (within forums or defined project environments).Dr Tomasz Kosmider Seminar „Clusters as a Tool for Innovation in Europe”TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS Foundation Helsinki, 11 June 2012
  14. 14. 8. Selected Recent ProjectsThe Database Information Platform for Effective Use of Research Results Project- Innovative Economy Operational Programme, financing from Structural Funds• Benefits for R&D orgsanisations implementing the tool: - effective management of resources, - improvement of internal communication, - joint planning and better coordination of multidisciplinary projects.• Benefits for external partners: Gateway to Polish R&D resources: easy, accurate and quick access to information on resources and activities.Dr Tomasz Kosmider Seminar „Clusters as a Tool for Innovation in Europe”TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS Foundation Helsinki, 11 June 2012
