Companies are interested in the possibility of sharing research equipment, related resources as well as their expertise.
Neither the companies nor the resources are effectively managed for this purpose.
This new approach involves challenges in the areas of characterization, knowledge management, logistics and organization, as well as intellectual property rights in an equitable sharing mode.
Conduct a year-long feasibility study based on the development and implementation of a technological platform for sharing research equipment and related resources. This study aims to optimize the use of the equipment and the value of the related resources’ expertise via a field experiment of functional prototypes
