Overall, the meeting today with Louis Renaud at CTS went well, we'll start collaborating.
Luis Renaud personally appreciates open innovation but, according to him, the system is not ready for it.
So, free funding will flow into SENSORICA through Tactus rather than directly. That's the only down side of it. We need to find other ways to fuel the development of our collaboration infrastructure.
Tactus will get help for a comprehensive market study, which will benefit all SENSORICA members. Moreover, Meriem Benmelouka and Luis Renaud will help Tactus with the business plan. We'll also get introduced to key players in the scientific and medical device industry, some of which will hopefully become members of SENSORICA.
On the other side, the SENSORICA platform will definitely get more exposure.
