DNA3.1.1 - Collaborations, Exploitation and Sustainability Plan

This document describes the exploitation plans, the expected exploitable results, the sustainability plans and their constraints and success criteria. This plan is updated every 12 months to report on the implementation, changes and results of the original plan [month 24].
This is an update of DNA2.4.2 (M12) and DNA2.1.1 (M1)

P1 external reviewers' report on D2.4.2 Exploitation and Sustainability Plan (M12)
This version of the exploitation plan builds on the foundation laid down in D2.4.1 and reveals a surprising level of maturity, considering that it embodies only the first year’s work. A convincing rationale is provided to justify the EMI approach to exploitation planning and a methodology is implicitly defined to guide them in that process. EMI components/products have already been identified and associated with their respective owners and licences. Among the classes of EMI exploitable products, there are the software components and services themselves, the EMI methodology, specialised techniques, and particular knowledge elements. Different routes for each of these classes of EMI product into various market segments are described. After explaining the benefits of the EMI software stack to these potential user communities, the demand from within them is measured and considered; a plan for sustaining the EMI stack beyond the end of the project is then sketched out, noting especially the obstacles they anticipate they will face. Considering the current early stage of the project, this is a highly commendable effort at exploitation planning. The EMI consortium clearly knows where it is and where it wants to go. Such a practical and sensible approach gives confidence that the EMI software stack actually will have a good chance of survival long after the end of the project. However, the sustainability plan is not yet as strong as the exploitation plan and much effort has to be made during the next period.

P1 external reviewers' report on D2.1.1 Collaboration Programs (M1)
This deliverable focuses on the EMI project’s collaborative efforts. EMI is already collaborating with many external entities, some of which are commercial, and has initiated an extensive outreach programme into other research communities. The style of the text implies an extremely confident consortium and has a marketing hype-factor feel to it, yet this is not a marketing document. The message might be easier to get across to the targeted technical user communities if it was oriented less towards “marketing-speak”.
