All work package leaders have plenty of experience in EU projects, know how to approach goals, and are professional and reliable partners. This helped a lot in the proposal preparation phase.*23.01.2014</p></li><li><p>Lessens Learned (2)Comments of my colleaguesPaul:A strong consortium, which was appreciated by the reviewers. The users group, that we prepared was a strong point that helpedInternally, we were well prepared from a content perspectiveThe proposers day turned out to be surprisingly useful, i.e., via discussions with the PO, to read between the lines of the proposal text, As an institution, I think we were well-placed to coordinate the proposal from a content perspective, i.e., with the three departments taking partI think we built on previous successes, e.g., with SECCRIT in last Security call</p><p>*23.01.2014</p></li><li><p>Summary of Lesson Learned *23.01.2014</p><p>*Leading R&amp;D organisation within the KIRAS programmeWhat happens between 2009 and 2013? Change ProcessStrategy DevelopmentTo pool strengths and competences: building a critical massApplied R&amp;D MethodologyEstablishing of networksClose Strategic Stakeholder cooperationsEstablishing cooperation with research community and industry Human ressoucesTrust in staff</p><p>*Implementation of a leading edge innovation process to foster innovative capabilities of the department</p><p>Ideas lead to a formal process Stage gate</p><p>The implementation of a leading edge innovation process, such as the Department ProjectLife Cycle Process (Department-PLP), has the following objectives: Achieves transparency; Guarantees compliance with deadlines and quality of deliverables; Ensures the implementation of the strategy; Enables effective resource and skill management; Enables monitoring and guarantees sustainability of work progress; Presents a fundamental basis for feedback/learning processes and evaluations lateron; Acts as a starting point and pulse generator for attendant processes likecommunication, marketing or partner management; Identifies synergy potentials with the Department; Enables strategic resource planning at an early stage of the process; Allows for priority setting and ensuring Department Portfolio Balance; Supports asset roadmap planning; Safeguards high quality standards for cooperation with industrial partners.</p><p>These processes support the coordination of activities and discussions between the various developers and marketing and sales, with the innovation process, from the early stage of idea generation to final outcomes (such as reports, patent descriptions, creation of industrial prototypes, etc.) are employed. So it is possible to increase the efficiency of internal work performance and to ensure the quality of the research results at a high level.</p><p>*Effective communication, processes and tools to manage the complexity of a huge number of projectsTrust and empowerment of the staff Enabling of creativityHigh transparency Brought competence skills Technology building blocks available Quality control in R&amp;D</p><p>Gate 0: Verify the idea The idea is the beginning of any innovation process. Basically, every employee, every innovation researchers and managers will be asked within the Department to formulate his ideas for potential research projects. These "ideas" are using certain methods and tools (2.0 communication tools, workshops, etc. based on Web) collected. In a further step, it is on the basis of expertise and available resources, these ideas to check formally and systematically, and to bring it into line with the strategic objectives of the Department. The results will form the basis for sharing with Gate 1</p><p>G1: Review the basic feasibility and usefulness; ie strategy of conformity Result = release for detail concept</p><p>G2: Evaluation of the final detail concept entire implementation concept and the implementation plan = Earnings Release for project implementation</p><p>gate 3 Examination of the completion of the project objectives Result = Enable for recovery, start the feedback process</p><p>Gate 4Based on the information collected from gate 1,2,3 a well-structured feedback process can be set up. These lessons learned then act as the basis of an ongoing learning process and establish effective management knowledge within the department.</p><p>*Within the IVS Area we target three major fields of safety and security related applications.</p><p>Our Research Programmes address the key challenges presented by these application fields, as I will illustrate on the following slides.*To complete scientific results : phase 3</p><p>Pase 2:New exploitation strategy and stakeholder partnershipsPositioning within the international research communityCooperation with other AIT departments for critical massDomain Expertise in selected areas and trusted partner</p><p>Pase 3Scientific excellence &amp; int. technology leadership in selected areasfrom projects to systems - establishing mid &amp; long term cooperations with research community and industry</p><p>***</p></li></ul>
