The aim of the commercialization project and timetable

The team is planning to finance the commercialization project by applying for TUTL (New knowledge and business from research ideas) funding instrument provided by Tekes. If the financing is obtained, the project will take place between 5/2015 – 4/2016.

The ideal person is capable of creating and implementing a business-to-business commercialization strategy. This gives an opportunity to be a member in the startup team. Primarily, this is not a consulting assignment.

TUTL is one of the three funding instruments that Tekes offers to research organizations and universities. During a TUTL project the project group prepares the commercialization of a research idea. The aim of the project is to produce a new start-up company or alternatively a new business area for an existing company. More information from Tekes’ websites.
