Ravita from Finland, TerraNova Energy from Germany and Aquacare from Netherlands are the three winners who are now part of the project’s pre-commercialisation phase.
The focus is on further developing their ecotechnologies to a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6 or higher, depending on the specific needs.
The steps being followed in this Pre-commercialisation phase are:
- Setting up test-beds.
- Developing business models and tools for stakeholder collaboration and sharing of resources (sites and equipment).
- Risk and benefit analyses as well as tools for procurement of innovations (for example pre-commercial procurement and functional procurement).
