During the course of pilot studies, questions are examined relating to alternative solutions, the benefit for users and business opportunities. Pilot studies are carried out by various parties working collaboratively, often with a significant input from the University´s researchers.
Many questions lead to more extensive development projects where the mode of working is often research closely-related to products. Solutions can be presented in the form of technology demonstrations or research reports, as a step along the path to improved services or products.
All services and products are developed in conjunction with the originators of the idea or product owners, which in many cases are companies. It is always the company which is responsible for the commercialisation of the results of pilot studies and developmental projects.
