The KA4 project DEEP.Com, funded from January 2011 till December 2012, is developing an online platform called EU-Xchange, providing services for EU project managers/ partners to support them in marketing their project results after the project duration. A tool-kit offering marketing support, e-learning sessions and an online community for licensing state-of-the-art products, assists EU project managers to market their products successfully. The services of DEEP.Com EU-Xchange are developed right now and will be ready in autumn. This accompanying measure takes DEEP.Com EU-Xchange a step further, by offering the services of DEEP.Com EU-Xchange in the main European languages DE, FR, ES and IT. Project managers of GRU projects are invited to look into the market potential of their project results and move those into the profit realm, beyond the lifespan of the original project. As GRU managers are usually not as familiar with marketing their project results, additional services will be offered. DEEP.Com EU-Xchange will be expanded by installing an online coaching and mentoring system for GRU project managers, which traditionally are more interested in the educational side of things. For this traget group the consortium will develop the «mobile» support, which shall include online, telephone and face-to-face support. In each of the partner countries the mentioned services will be made available during the duration of «DEEP.Com goes Mobile» and beyond to all project managers of GRU projects since the programme started. This way GRU project managers can already check the market potential of their planned project results during the application stage and make sure their products meet the market needs as well as the needs of the end users. Eventually GRU project results will generate income for the consortia in the long run and promote the innovative and creative potential of people and organisations involved in Adult Education around Europe.
