Open ENTRANCE was a 4-year H2020 project (2019 -2023). Open ENTRANCE developed, applied and disseminated an open, transparent and integrated modelling platform designed to assess low-carbon transition pathways in Europe. The platform is populated with a suite of open state-of-the-art models that process data derived from multiple dimensions of the energy transition. Data is also made open available via the platform according to the FAIR principles.
This report (Open ENTRANCE deliverable 8.2) describes the Exploitation and IPR (Intellectual Property Rights) management plan for Open ENTRANCE. There are different results from Open ENTRANCE: an open modelling platform, open models, linked models, a common format for linking of models, data, tools for processing of the data, results from analyses, reports, presentations, communications results and scientific papers. Most of the results are open and freely available to the public.
The management strategies for IPR focus on:
- Identifying project results
- Identifying the property of the results
- Making as much as possible of the project results free of use
- Identifying any licensing, copyrights etc
The exploitation strategies focus on:
- Identifying target groups for the results
- Exploitation strategies per partner
The Open ENTRANCE results are already used in at least 15 new research proposals and projects. In several of these activities some of the Open ENTRANCE partners collaborate. Examples are the HEU projects ECEMF (IIASA and Comillas), iDesignRES (NTNU, IIASA, TU Wien, TU Berlin, EDF and SINTEF), OpenMod4Africa (SINTEF, Comillas, TU Berlin, EDF and IIASA) and the Clean Energy Transition partnership proposal Man0EUvRE (SINTEF, TU Berlin/EUF, EDF, Khas, NTNU). So far, most of the projects or proposals use elements of The Open Platform like the scenarios, the nomenclature (ECEMF) or some of the models and the Scenario explorer (OpenMod4Africa and iDesignRES).
