Which Services Cightech Provides?
Collaborative High-tech Innovation Program (CHIP): Cightech is connected to a number of academic professors and industrial experts worldwide. We discover a common interest between our associate members and integrate them in a research or R&D proposal that will be submitted to a proper funding agency. Cightech will be one of the project partners who has idea generation, research design, counseling, support of professional and public presentations, and project organization/management role and will receive its fee that is pre-defined in the research plan from funding agency or other sponsors (e.g. industrial contribution). It is obvious that in this platform we will not charge our academic associate members. We will use information technology to connect our associate members during idea generation and to have a continuous and effective control on project development during the project. Moreover, we emphasize on aesthetic, communication, and writing techniques for our professional and public presentations to improve the impact of our project.
Highway to Innovation for New Talents (HINT): Cightech also invites young talents/researchers who are interested in developing their own idea/research aiming to achieve a producible prototype and to be prepared for starting up his/her own company. We will find suitable associate members regarding the topic of interest of the young researcher for further development. The young researcher may contribute in Cightech’s activities from idea generation to project management and get counseling and credit support of Cightech in order to achieve a higher scale of the project with higher funding resource.
Sponsor Absorption (SA): For SMEs (e.g. high tech Co. in tech parks) we first detect their stage and the type and quality of their product and then find suitable industrial investor for and negotiate with them. We also accept order from industries to suggest them a technology for solving their problems. Cightech may contribute in this kind of products or just link a SME to an Industry in expense of commission.
Professional Counseling (PC): In addition to our main services, Cightech gives scientific counseling to industry or academia in an expense of counseling fee. We will also keep our Intellectual Property in anything like research papers or patents that we have a professional contribution.
Contribution in Production and Promotion (CPP): Cightech will contribute in high-tech or green-tech products and/or in marketing and promotion of such products if we are interested.
Tech-Evaluation (TE): In addition to project progress assessments includes in CHIP, Cightech offers evaluation services for tech-parks and other higher level organizations to assess progress of tech-companies and SMEs during working year.
