Management of knowledge and innovation is an integral part of our project. We will focus on the role and synergies between partners’ experiences, competences, capabilities, and on how partners will protect, share, manage IPR capital actual exploitation. Detailing of the exploitation plans and preparation for innovation activities will be continuously followed up throughout the project. The innovation management is well integrated in the management structure of the project and in the work plan (see Section 3.2.3). A strategy for the knowledge management, protection and for the exploitation of results, the Exploitation Plan [D11.3], will be defined for the consortium in the early stage of the project, based on the principles explained extensively in Sections 2.2.2 and 2.2.5. The strategy will be regularly updated during the entire project. Updates will be submitted to the EC as an integral part of the Project Periodic Reports. At the end of the project a Strategy for the Intellectual Property exploitation [D11.4] will be drafted for providing best practices in capturing and assessing the Intellectual Property and providing measures for exploitation after the end of the project. AtlantOS will provide open access to peer-reviewed scientific publications through a combination of golden open access and green open access, and it is voluntarily taking part in the European Commission Open Access Data Pilot for Research Data (see Section 2.2.5): we have included a Data Management Plan as a deliverable for project-month 6 [D11.2] to be drafted in compliance with the guidelines given on data management in the Horizon 2020 Online Manual and with inputs of WP7. This deliverable will evolve during the lifetime of the project and represent faithfully the status of the project reflections on data management. Updates of the data management plan are thus planned in project-month 12, 24, 36, and 51, and will be submitted to the EC as an integral part of the Project Periodic Reports.

Deliverables:

D11.2 Data Management Plan (DMP): The DMP will be drafted in compliance with the guidelines given on data management in the Horizon 2020 Online Manual. PM6

D11.3 Exploitation Plan (EP): Plan identifying types of potential pathways of market- oriented exploitation, converting or transforming knowledge will be identified, together with key factors for a successful innovation management. PM 12

D11.4 Strategy for the Intellectual Property exploitation: Strategy for defining measures for exploitation “afterthe project” phase, providing evidence of best practices in capturing and assessing IP. PM 51
