1 POLITECNICO DI TORINO AND SUPPORT FOR RESEARCH LAURA FULCI Head of Research and Technology Transfer Support Division

2 2 Research Support and Technology Transfer Area- SaRTT covers all activities related to research in two main areas:  Financed projects (international, European, national and regional )  Technology Transfer and commercial activities Research support at Politecnico

3 3 SaRTT structure SaRTT structure Administration Unit Budget and Institutions Partecipated Fund Raising for Research Contracts Office Regional, National and European Projects Management Collaborative Projects Office Funded Project Management Basic Research and Researchers Mobility Relations with Industries and Technologic Transfer Quality center RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER SUPPORT DIVISION Funding bodies and Internal Structures Relations Unit DRAFT STRUCTURE

4 4 European Fund raising Support to the participation to funding programmes of the EU (Framework programmes of research and development, demonstration and training) during the whole duration of the project  Scouting of project ideas and matching with funding programmes topics and consulting for proposal preparation and for partnership enstablishment.  Infoday and training event organization for researchers and administrative personnel and promotion ‘outside’ of project ideas and of the skills of the University  Assistance for the administrative and financial project management National Fund raising Support to the life cicle of the: research and training project co funded by National Funds, (FIRB, FESR, FAR, FIT, ecc), UE funding on Structural Funds, Piedmont Region Funds, other territorial entity, foundations etc etc Fund raising services

5 5 ADDICTIONAL ACTIVITIES  Mapping of the skills and project ideas scouting  Pro-active approach for the preparation of project idea and consortia costitution  Stimulate to use a multidisciplinary approach to participation to european projects (es. multidisciplinary round tables coordination, thematic meetings, infodays) acting as trade-union among researchers fron different disciplinary areas  Central coordination of multisciplinary and strategic activities (es., EIT, Smart cities, FET Flagships, Human Resources Strategy for Researcher, Technological Cluster national)  Participation to consultation at Ue/National/Local level for the writing of agendas, guidelines ecc  Participation to European and national Clusters, both thematic and cross sectoriall, collecting all the different expertise  Central coordination of the relations with industrial partners  Promoting of the mobility of researchers Fund raising services: added value

6 6  “Marketing of innovation” and diffusion of research results of Politecnico towards companies (IFE)  Activities related to projects of significant interest to the University in partnership with actors of primary importance (Gm, Microsoft, Pirelli, etc) with particular attention to their integration in the Cittadella Politecnica  Technology scouting intended to bring out technologies with high potential for industrial exploitation (skills mapping and implementation of the information system)  Activities linked to the exploitation of “intellectual property” and “enterprise creation” (Research Spin-off) in collaboration with I3P, the Innovative Enterprise Incubator of the Politecnico Technology Transfer service

7 7 Special projects – IFE GOALS:  To identify and understand the needs of research and innovation coming from the outside world of business to foster Knowledge and Technology Transfer  To increase and improve the existing relations between Polito research groups and external companies  To achieve this goal IFE activities can be divided into: INNOVATION FRONT END - IFE (a front office available since 2010) FRONT – END ACTIVITIES INSTRUMENTAL ACTIVITIES

8 8 First Contact Firm’s needs analysis (first meeting) Identification of Polito’s relevant expertise and multidisciplinary team assembly Contract terms negotiation Follow-up 1-2 weeks CONTACT: Work proposal We understand the companies’ needs in terms of timing and efficiency and strive to provide our best professional service From IDEAS to RESEARCH
