RTDS Group (RTDS) is the leading Austrian SME consultant and service provider specialised in the development and implementation of EU research & innovation projects with main areas of specialisation in the circular and bioeconomy and digitisation. In the proposal phase, we offer professional support from conceptional design and partner search, through to proposal writing with main emphasis on the impact section. As project beneficiary RTDS, typically leads the work package on dissemination, communication and exploitation (DEC). Not pursuing ownership of core results, RTDS manages results objectively supporting the consortium to manage IP, assess TRL, clarify ownership and develop business models for post-project exploitation of results. Furthermore, we design and implement dissemination and communication plans to address stakeholders, from consumers through to industry and policy makers in line with on the project context and strategy. RTDS can also take on the role as Coordinator, running the full project management, reporting and administration, dealing directly with the funding agency, so that the research partners can focus on their research and the industry/SME partners can focus on development of products and services. Everybody doing what they do best! RTDS was confirmed the No. 1 Austrian non-profit SME in both FP7 and H2020 with 12 project participations, five of which as Coordinator, in H2020. RTDS also lead the only three Bio-Based Industries (BBI-JU) projects coordinated in Austria and are of course well connected with key circular and bioeconomy industrial and other stakeholders across Europe.
