WP10 objectives

The general objective of WP10 is to ensure the exploitation and replication of all the knowledge, methods and technical results obtained from the execution of the rest of the WPs, with the aim to pave the way for the market uptake of CORALIS in the industrial environment around Europe. This WP critically assesses all the issues related to the creation of the required infrastructure for the promotion of CORALIS solutions. The specific objectives for each task are:


  • to analyse market applications perspectives, risk and opportunities for the uptake of the project solutions (Task 10.1);
  • to define the most suitable strategy for the results exploitation, focusing on the IPR management among partners (Task 10.2);
  • to identify standardization and policy gaps and provide recommendations to overcome them (Task 10.3);
  • to compile practical recommendations to foster IS into a Handbook (Task 10.4)


WP10 status

After the finalization of Task 10.1 (Market analysis of IS hot spots and potential for CORALIS replication), through the Deliverable 10.1 (Market analysis results for replication), we are now focusing on Tasks 10.2, 10.3 and 10.4.


Regarding Task 10.2 (First draft of the Exploitation Plan IPR management and exploitation strategy for the technology developments of the project), the WP has started to share more knowledge about Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) with a workshop (3rd exploitation workshop), inviting IPR experts to present and answer to some questions/curiosities/doubts about IPR by the demos. The publishable summary of D10.2 First draft of the Exploitation Plan can be accessed here.

At this moment, Task 10.3 (Assessment of regulatory and standardization aspects towards CORALIS replication) is proceeding to analyze the European regulatory framework to provide an overview of the state of waste management within the EU (with the main reference directive being the Waste Framework Directive) and in the Member States hosting the demo sites, with particular attention to how industrial symbiosis is influenced by regulatory frameworks.

Lastly, SSSA started online meetings with the coordination partner CIRCE to define the contribute of WP10 in the CORALIS Handbook for supporting the implementation of IS (Task 10.4)


WP10 next steps

The next steps for WP10 are:

  • collecting data about IPR (helping each demo to define its IPR strategy);
  • start updating the D10.2 (First draft of the Exploitation Plan);
  • definition of the European regulatory framework and focus on the main barriers;
  • complete the barriers analysis for Copper Alliance activity;
  • setting the role of the technical committees within the task activity also involving Experts from CEN CENELEC;
  • proceeding with the finalization of the Handbook.
