Scientific works highlights

Scientific works include publications such as peer reviewed articles, conference proceedings, scientific posters, thesis, books, grey literature….

Publications are ordered by default by relevance.

The relevancy of a document is mainly based on the following indicators :

Projects highlights

Projects include European projects ( Framework Programmes  called FP,6,7 & H2020) and American projects (SBIR & STTR).

European Projects

The Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development, also called Framework Programmes or abbreviated FP1 to FP7 with “FP8” being named “Horizon 2020”, are funding programmes created by the European Union/European Commission to support and foster research in the European Research Area (ERA). The specific objectives and actions vary between funding periods. In FP6 and FP7 focus was still in technological research, in Horizon 2020 the focus is in innovation, delivering economic growth faster and delivering solutions to end users that are often governmental agencies.

American Projects

The purpose of the SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research, created in 1982) and STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer  programs, created in 2000 is to encourage SMEs to engage in research activities and to innovate.

The SBIR program targets the development by SMEs of innovation projects with commercial potential.

The STTR program pursues the same goal and requires, in addition, collaboration between companies and public research organizations.

Therefore, only the STTR  projects are collaborative projects.

In both cases, it is a technology competition opened by federal departments and agencies. These agencies must devote part of their outsourced R & D budget to projects presented by SMEs. Departments and agencies, however, select subjects and winners.

These two programs are structured in 3 phases, each represented by an “award”:

  • Phase 1: Feasibility study and prototyping, the cost must not exceed $ 150,000 and not last more than 6 months.
  • Phase 2: Research and Development, the cost must not exceed $ 1,000,000 and last no longer than 24 months.
  • Phase 3: Marketing, not funded by the program (So not available in Orbit Innovation)

 

Projects are ordered by default by relevance. The relevancy of a project is mainly based on the following indicators :

Clinical Studies highlights

A clinical trial or study is a research study using human subjects to evaluate biomedical or health-related outcomes.

In general, clinical studies are designed to add to medical knowledge related to the treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of diseases or conditions. Some common reasons for conducting clinical studies include:

  • Evaluating one or more interventions (for example, drugs, medical devices, approaches to surgery or radiation therapy) for treating a disease, syndrome, or condition
  • Finding ways to prevent the initial development or recurrence of a disease or condition. These can include medicines, vaccines, or lifestyle changes, among other approaches.
  • Evaluating one or more interventions aimed at identifying or diagnosing a particular disease or condition
  • Examining methods for identifying a condition or the risk factors for that condition Exploring and measuring ways to improve the comfort and quality of life through supportive care for people with a chronic illness

 

The reliability of these studies is based on a rigorous and proven scientific method to limit any bias, error in data collection or interpretation of results.

Clinical studies are ordered by default by relevance. The relevancy of a clinical study is mainly based on the following indicators :
