Valorisation of knowledge

The valorization of R&D is an important aspect of innovation projects which make it possible to enrich the knowledge and information heritage of an organization. This is particularly valid for European collaborative projects, where the European Commission pays a lot of attention to the communication and exploitation of the projects results it finances, in order to catalyze a market launch or to facilitate the decision. Dowel Management has extensive expertise in the areas of dissemination and exploitation of results, acts as a partner on several European projects and supports a large number of clients.

Business models design

The design of a comprehensive innovation project requires the specification of the unique added value on which the business model or plan will be based.
Dowel Management’s activities cover value chains where innovation processes are conditioned by various regulations acting as barriers or catalysts facilitating the commercial use of the developed innovations (energy, building, clean manufacturing, environment and health). Dowel Management assists clients with proven approaches and supports development efforts on differentiating functions that quickly build competitive market share.

Road maps

With expertise at different organizational levels (local authorities, companies, industries, researchers, or professional associations), DOWEL has developed a collaborative construction approach based on methodological tools and animation techniques validated and refined over numerous missions at the French and European scale for more synergies.

It means to:

  • bring the actors of an organization or a technological / sectoral industry into a widely shared and inspiring long-term vision  
  • identify the main challenges, success factors and hindrances to overcome to make this vision achievable
  • formalize shorter-term targets that are concrete and measurable, enabling the implementation of an action plan with clear objectives, staggered over time and realistic enough to be motivating

This structuring and prioritization of actions makes it possible to include the approach in a process of continuous improvement.
