BONUS RETURN will facilitate pre commercialization of winning eco-technologies emerging from the Call for Innovations. The focus here will be on further developing the selected eco-technologies to a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6 or higher, depending on the innovation’s point of departure and needs. This will be in close collaboration with local stakeholders from the three case studies in Finland, Sweden and Poland; as well as through BONUS RETURN’s decision-support tool.

Pre-commercialisation will be done through the following steps:

– Set up test-bed and/or Living Labs for 1-3 eco-technologies (one in each case study site)

– Develop business models and tools for stakeholder collaboration and sharing of resources (sites and equipment).

– Risks and benefit analyses as well as tools for procurement of innovations (for example pre-commercial procurement and functional procurement).
