D1.1 Mapping of existing tools and services as well as service providers


This report comprehends the stocktaking and analysis of existing tools, services, and service providers for European research and innovation actors in the United States or seeking to internationalise in the US. To reach this goal a mixture of methods has been used: a literature review, combined with a quantitative analysis from an online survey of European stakeholders, as well as a mapping through desktop research; and a qualitative examination has been undertaken through telephone interviews with service providers.

The aim of this report is to identify the demand for the services proposed to European stakeholders by the NearUS project. The primary source for this analysis was the NearUS survey launched towards respondents potentially interested in NearUS activities. For completing these elements, a literature review was undertaken and 15 interviews conducted with various type of EU stakeholders.
