2In 2012, TEN provided the Canadian Institute for Photonic Innovations (CIPI) with a detailed logic model specific to its purposes and expected impacts on companies, as well as an impact assessment that reported the actual impact that CIPI had on companies it served. The assessment was conducted as CIPI was wrapping up as an entity.  The network wanted evidence of impact it had on companies during its existence, and TEN delivered. CIPI was able to provide proof it was a valuable asset to the companies it served – it was a strong way to close out an excellent tenure.

6In 2010 and 2012, TEN provided Tekes with an impact assessment that reported the actual impact that UCLA’s Global Access Program (GAP) has on Finnish companies.  Further, in 2012 TEN conducted a comparison analysis between the two cohort years to determine whether or not the program was improving over time. Tekes is Finland’s main funding organization for research, development, and innovation.  Tekes is a repeat customer of TEN, using benchmarking comparisons to track improvements over time, learn from best practices, and implement new learnings to become more efficient.  TEN’s impact assessments have enabled Tekes and GAP to expand their reach and improve the attributed impact they have on Finnish companies.
