On December 31th 2014 the SICI project came to an end with a very positive overall balance. As a result of the project, more than 130 collaborations were established, producing more than 70 joint publications out of a total of 432 articles published by SICI members throughout the duration of the project. Furthermore, 13 patent applications have been produced as part of this collaborative effort, some of which have been extended internationally. Finally, two spin offs have been created during this time.
