PROBLEM SOLVING & R&D PROJECTS
A team of Innovation Managers and a network of skills are available to assess the scientific underlying of innovative approaches and unrealized ideas, analyse a problem that cannot be solved, consciously drive investment in R&D or complete your team on a project, both in the technical-scientific area and in the fields of economics, humanities and organisational sciences.
In addition to in-house expertise, the Consortium offers an ecosystem of research players capable of taking on different problems without compromising on specialisation.
💡 Our innovation model
No traditional consulting firm could operate in distant disciplinary areas without losing depth. However, innovative ideas and projects easily spread across sectors and require a multidisciplinary approach.
Thanks to our academic and non-academic network, our Find Your Doctor platform with thousands of researchers from all over Italy, young analysis and engineering firms, laboratories and specialized consultants who are joining our ecosystem over time, C2T has built an open innovation model that overcomes this problem, allowing us to help companies in the analysis of problems that require a scientific point of view without restrictions of field.
Depending on the specificities of the requirement, we will be in charge of identifying the appropriate stakeholders and coordinating activities, integrating internal and external resources. If the project has an IT component, we will involve our internal ICT Lab, while our department dedicated to calls for funding and subsidised finance can take action to make the project economically sustainable.
🛠️ How we work
These are the main steps of our R&D Problem Solving service:
1. Contact us
Submit your request by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or through our contact form.
2. Meet your Innovation Manager
Go deeper into the subject with the scientific consultant (Innovation Manager) that we will assign to the project: after analysing the issue, the consultant will propose the most suitable collaboration formula (e.g. involvement of a single researcher, or of a research group, collaboration with internal C2T figures…) and will submit you a formal offer.
3. Let us select the resources
After accepting the offer, C2T will select the people necessary to start the business, using its network.
4. Check-out your tailor-made team
C2T will introduce you to the team it has set up for you, optionally with the possibility of choosing your favorite among several possible interlocutors.
5. Start your project
The last details will be defined and formalised with the chosen team members and the activity will start.
6. Follow activities
The Innovation Manager assigned to your project will remain your contact point for the entire project, acting as a hub for the management of the activities.
