Financial & practical support for projects

Since I am an academic, I would like to ask the Community members what they consider to be the main characteristics a project should have in order to obtain financial and practical support from the world of industry… ranking from what they need most to least (feasibility? startup costs? novelty?)…

Your thoughts would be gratefully received.

Many thanks,

Hi Elena,

Excellent question!!!

From my personal experience - I believe an important aspect in securing research funds from industry is to make sure you are helping industry answer research questions that are critical to their core business needs or future plans. Therefore, it is advisable to involve industry in defining the project aims, objectives, deliverables and milestones as early as possible.

Best wishes,
