From insights to impact. How to deliver on research purpose
Recent years have seen increased expectations for researchers to demonstrate the societal impact of their research and show how this is delivered (e.g. KPIs issued by public & private research funding organizations).
To keep pace with this demand, researchers require a fully integrated suite of tools to allow them to create, collaborate and share the key results of their ﬁndings with academic, non-academic and business audiences.
WHAT WE DO
We map the global research landscape in real time
One of PosterLab’s primary aims is to save researchers and their institutions time and money. Our suite of tools helps researchers to better structure their research ﬁndings, creating optimised collaboration workﬂows, and accelerating the dissemination of their research results to the right stakeholders.
For R&D driven Companies
PosterLab supports R&D intensive corporations, SMEs, Start-ups and NGOs active in the fields of Life Sciences and Chemistry in feeding their innovation funnel by providing access to early stage research ﬁndings. With our “disseminate and feed” platform, our clients are automatically, seamlessly and systemically (machine learning-based model) informed whenever new research findings are uploaded which align with their innovation pipeline management strategy.
PosterLab suite of tools
To tailor and design our services for maximum added value, we interviewed a representative sample of all relevant stakeholders across the entire research value chain. Our prototypes were tested and validated by master students, PhD candidates, post-Docs, professors, teams from university/institutes/research clusters, public and private grants providers, policy actors, and R&D driven corporations.
Our story: The power of 3
The idea for PosterLab has its roots in Santi’s experience as a Communication Designer for one of the biggest medical university hospitals in Barcelona. Santi noticed that researchers were often very frustrated by barriers to effectively communicating their research and the resulting disadvantages for visibility, impact, funding and career perspectives.
To cut a long story short, Santi, Sebastien and Nicolas joined forces shortly after Santi overheard a conversation between the others on how to capture and demonstrate the positive impact of research on society. The first of many animated discussions ensued, and shortly after, PosterLab was born. The original scope was honed and expanded to align with researchers’ needs and expectations, leading to a unique Research Branding tool. PosterLab offers a “one-stop-shop” spanning the whole research value chain: from researchers, research institutions, R&D-driven companies, and funding organisations. Based on our individual expertise, we place a focus on research stakeholders in the fields of Life Science & Chemistry.
Our complementarity is our number 1 asset and deﬁnes PosterLab’s mission. Our team brings together three key aspects across three different arenas. 1) We come from three different industries (education learning software, B2B communication, and chemical related industry). 2) We can draw on perspectives from three cultural backgrounds (German, French, Spanish) 3) We have our roots in three different career tracks (software development, communication design and international business development). What unites us: we are entrepreneurially-minded, B2B focused and continuously learn and profit from each other’s experience.
To demonstrate and maximize the positive impact of research on our society.
We map the global research landscape in real time by multiplying the reach of research results, visibility and funding, at a single click.
