CORDIS offers improved online submission tool for publication of exploitable results

August 4, 2003

Brussels, 01 Aug 2003

CORDIS, the European Commission's Research and Development Information Service, has developed an easier-to-use submission tool for innovators wishing to present their research results in its comprehensive bank of exploitable technology.

The new submission feature enables registered CORDIS users to submit and regularly update their project descriptions. Innovators can propose any results qualifying as the exploitable outcome of a research project of some scientific or technical merit. For example, scientific discoveries, innovative methods and patented technologies are all welcome. Published results can stem from both European and non-European funded projects.

Presented on the CORDIS Results service are descriptions of key research results and abstracts, information on the stage of development, funding and expected exploitation as well as contact details. Users are invited to update the information on a yearly basis.

Top results are selected and highlighted on the Technology Marketplace, a showcase for the latest available technologies, which aims to assist transfers and exchanges on business, science and society issues. To appear on the Technology Marketplace, the results should be able to demonstrate economic and social impact, closeness to the market and / or market demand.

The new online feature reinforces the growing interactivity of the Technology Marketplace and offers increased visibility to innovators' results. It also facilitates the updating of information for all stakeholders wishing to locate relevant technology, build upon past achievements, avoid research duplication and identify actors with experience. =Submit+Results
