Technology Readiness Level (TRL) guide
Although scientific and technological progress is endless, we need to acknowledge that S&T developments, to be impactful, have to achieve at some time a ´final´ form that can be offered to the users markets.
The Technology Readiness Level (TRL) is an indicator of the maturity of these developments. It indicates how close is a technology to its final form, i.e. it shows to what extent the technology is fully operational and can be introducced into the commercial and non-commercial markets.
TRLs are based on a scale from 1 to 9, being 9 the most mature technology.
The aim of this TRL assessment guide is to support HBP members in homogeneously evaluating the TRL of their developing results (hardware, software, services, datasets, or models).
The TRL assessment guide is available for download here.
