The goal of the project was to involve users in evaluating ideas based on ICT research on the PATIO forum and to utilise user feedback in the development of ideas and the creation of new business enterprises.
An event was organised in cooperation between the EGR and 3D City projects that involved a public discussion on the PATIO online forum before and after the event. This evaluation discussion was designed and conducted by OULLabs specialists, who also compiled a report of its results.
The active PATIO discussion (99 comments) was later utilised at a Business from Research event aimed at aspiring entrepreneurs. At this event, researchers introduced ideas with business potential gleaned from the PATIO discussion.
