Capitalization plan progress: support and promotion
90 EU funded projects analysed; i.e. 41 projects are funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme whereas 49 projects are funded by ENI CBC MED programme co-financed by the European Commission. Each project was intensively studied to identify the intended innovation upon which the project is based.
It has been noted that there is no direct linkage between commercialization channels and TRL due to several factors, yet its importance in evaluating the commercialization of technologies cannot be overlooked. However, this report managed to introduce best practices in the choice of commercialization channels in an attempt to link commercialization channels with TRL parameters.
Moving forward, this deliverable will help support and promote the capitalization plan, through the identification of efficient solutions which could be replicated in various key sectors whilst taking into consideration their commercial potential. This could help support PHEMAC project activities which aim to overcome NEXUS challenges and to promote the capitalization demand from additional regions and stakeholders.
