The Booster Service supports effective transfer of research and innovation project results to policy-makers, industry and society. The programme offers various services as dissemination, exploitation strategy and business plan development to projects supported under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) or Horizon 2020 funding schemes.

The Booster service offers common support services for dissemination, exploitation and valorisation of research and innovation results, and helps projects to find their access to the market. Hence, the programme addresses namely projects eager to go beyond their Dissemination and Exploitation (D&E) obligations under Horizon 2020. The service implementation timeframe is from January 2020 to December 2024.

    • creating a results portfolio with other projects,
    • creating and executing common dissemination strategy for a cluster of projects,
    • improving existing exploitation plan.
  2.   Tailor made support services to develop a business plan;
  3.   Assistance, coaching and mentoring for go to market activities.

There are two basic eligibility criteria:

  1. The application must originate from a project funded under FP7 or H2020, ongoing or closed.
  2. A project consortium can benefit from one specific service only once but it can apply for the three different services altogether.
