The Online Despute Resolution (OdR) has its own deliberative body called the Scientific Technical Committee. It is made out of inter-disciplinary people in the attempt to let all research areas express themselves through OdR own goals.

The Scientific and Technical Committee is ethical and public representative of the freedom of research, it promotes scientific information sharing and the technological innovation release or even simply the knowledge in all application areas.

It also deals with the release of its work and knowledge diffusion. The Scientific and Technical Committee undertakes preliminary assessment and analysis activities on OdR submitted research projects.

In detail:

• Analysis of the required criteria of those requesting the examination of their research projects;
• Assessment of eligibility criteria of the submitted research projects;
• Analysis of contents and the competent fields of the research nature here postulated (basic, industrial or scientific research or with comparative, interdisciplinary or transversal nature);
• Identification of contents in the submitted research projects that are innovative or meaningful;
• Evaluation of eligibility criteria of described contents;
• Decision on the approval of the projects, expressing its positive opinion or referring them back for acceptance or rejecting them for not meeting the set requirements;
• Monitoring the results of the approved projects up to their conclusion, through the Research organisation;

 The Committee:

Recommends to the Research Organization the activities to promote (editorial or mass communication) for the diffusion and dissemination of the results of certain projects that resulted in the most innovative or interesting ones that the Scientific and Technological Committee has evaluated. It also recommends any activities of study and supplementary research on subjects highlighted by the assessing activity of the submitted research projects or on different topics or other fields (born from the comparative and interdisciplinary relationship) provided that they are considered of some interest and are aimed at acquiring new knowledge or enhancing already existing ones.
Works by means of the Research Organization, for technology hand over, diffusion and exchange of data with universities or other National, International Research Organizations or with local companies (or their professional associations).
Contributes to the methods agreed upon with the Research Organization, to the preparation or updating of training courses through the broadcasting of the results of Studies and Research.

 

Increased R & D tax credit with Stability

With the fastest lawmaking in history, the text of the 2017 Budget Law has been revised without any amendments, with good news and validation for contributions and facilitations to businesses.
It starts from the tax credit for research & development: the government wanted it richer and longer lasting with immediate operations.

The maximum benefit obtainable for a company quadruples from here to 2020: from 5 to 20 million euros. At the same time, the total budget is doubled from 2.4 billion to over 5.5 billion euros. It is operational until 2020, not until 2019 as originally planned. The percentage of credit rises to 50% for all eligible expenses, including unqualified staff who have so far been stable at 25%. The incremental calculation criterion is confirmed respect to the average R & D investment in the 2012-2014 triennium.

Digital investments: depreciation at 250%

From 2017 until 30 June 2018, companies investing in advanced machinery and technology for industrial innovation can count on the brand new 250% high-depreciation. In practice, facilitation translates into corporate savings in a 36% tax savings.
