The European Research Council has awarded Xavier Serra a Proof of Concept grant to complement the CompMusic project. This new project will be dedicated to promote the exploitation of a number of technologies that can support on-line music education.

The TECSOME project will develop an exploitable system to facilitate the assessment of the music exercises submitted by music students taking on-line courses. The system will integrate technologies developed within the CompMusic project that measure the similarity between musical audio recordings, and with it, there will be an effort to define a market strategy to exploit it. The goal is to develop an approach with which to scale up music performance courses to MOOC level.

 Proof of Concept grants, worth €150,000 each and open to ERC grant holders, can be used to establish intellectual property rights, investigate business opportunities or conduct technical validation. Xavier Serra already got a Proof of Concept grant in 2015, CAMUT,  in that case, to exploit other CompMusic results for the particular case of Indian music.
