Project Details


The project IPACSO developed a structured knowledge and decision-support framework for identifying, assessing and exploiting market opportunities across the PACS (Privacy and Cyber Security) industry domain. For this, the project will identify existing market drivers, inhibitors, environmental influencers, different applicable innovation models from other industries and develop materials and bootcamps to support the developments. The project will reach out to PE markets (Private Equity) and support organizations (existing innovation support companies, brokers, ...) to facilitate the process for development.

The framework will support different stakeholders (security innovators in industry and academia) in the PACS space to identify, assess and exploit new ideas (and emerging research outcomes) using innovation and market assessment best practices. The framework will develop the existing innovation management state-of-the-art, providing refined support for efforts in the PACS technology space.
