In H2020, a result is defined as:
“Any tangible or intangible output of the action, such as data, knowledge and information whatever their form or nature, whether or not they can be protected, which are generated in the action as well as any attached rights, including intellectual property rights”.
A Key Exploitable Result (KER) is an identified main interesting result (as defined above) which has been selected and prioritised due to its high potential to be “exploited” – meaning to make use and derive benefits- downstream the value chain of a product, process or solution, or act as an important input to policy, further research or education.
In order for you to select and prioritise your results we would recommend that you use the following criteria:
- Degree of innovation, (b) exploitability and (c) impact.
Results such as ‘outcomes or announcements of consortia meetings, conferences or other events’ are not considered as KERs and therefore are not in the scope of the Horizon Results Platform. ‘Project deliverables’ are not necessarily Key Exploitable Results either and it is not the purpose of the Horizon Results Platform to be the reporting tool to the Project Officer!
