  13. LESSONS LEARNED • To achieve significant social goals, a non-profit, independent, public-private institution has shown to be very effective. • A single initial endowment, followed by the task of being self-financed, forces to maintain financial discipline. • Transfer of technologies already used in other countries, offers significant opportunities for innovation in developing economies. • For many technological innovations, national and international networking is essential. …

  14. A strong market-oriented business approach is one of the factors behind many of FCH’s succesful projects. • In developing new technologies, to have an early definition of the exit strategy is very convenient. • Chances of success increase when multiple actions, including the development of both technology and human resources, are concentrated in key sectors or clusters.
