One of the typical aspects of applied scientific and technology-driven research is that it focuses on the development of a specific technology that aims at solving a specific problem of a specific target group. In terms of the STOF model, this kind of research aims at specifying the technology domain and parts of the service domain. Attention should also be paid to other aspects, i.e. the organization and finance domains to make the technology available to a broader public at a later stage. In this chapter we sketch a procedure to broaden the scope of a traditional technology push research project, using parts of the STOF method. To encourage potential business model discussions, we designed several organizational arrangements and discussed them with stakeholders and potential partners. We combined a decision support method making use of the Critical Success Factors to select a business model.
