The exploitation of research outcomes is now, perhaps more than ever, a necessity and an opportunity. We will discuss how an idea on cutting-edge scientific result exploitation has been built and is being implemented, under a crowd-funding perspective.

We will describe how a new perspective for scientific result exploitation has paved the road to a variety of open and freely accessible products, based on such scientific domains as:
