Dissemination of scientific discoveries 

Dissemination of scientific sharing research results with potential users - peers in the research field, industry, other commercial players and policymakers). We support R&D teams by sharing research results with the rest of the scientific community, contributing to the progress of science in general. 

Exploitation of scientific results

Communicate the potential use of project's results in science to target audience, future licensee and general public is one of the main goal of a scientific project ​and not always is an easy task. Chelonia is collaborating with more than hundred research institutes in Europe and beyond as leader of work packages correlated with dissemination and exploitation of scientific results.  


Engage in multistakeholders projects and partner over 100 top research institutions. Discover with whom we are working with.  Here below a summary of just few of the projects where Chelonia is involved.

Piero Carninci, member of Scientific Committee of Chelonia, currently is Team Leader for Laboratory for Transcriptome Technology and Deputy Centre Director at the RIKEN Centre for Integrative Medical Sciences in Yokohama (Japan) and advisor at Human Technopole in Milano (Italy). Piero is responsible for the creation and development of various new technologies for DNA and RNA sequencing and analysis. He has also been involved in leading many large scale national and international initiatives, such as FANTOM, ENCODE and more recently the Human Cell Atlas. 


While we answer requests for innovation from industry thanks to the professional network of scientists and business developers, this program aims to help the research careers of outstanding scientists working on mathematical and theoretical approaches to topics in the life sciences. The intent of Chelonia Applied Science in Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science programs is to support outstanding scientists in their most productive years, when they are establishing creative new research directions, providing leadership to the field and effectively mentoring to enabling the use of the scientific discovery. We welcome proposals from well-established researchers who develop and apply advance theoretical physics ideas and methods in the life sciences.
