Funding for projects to demonstrate full technical and commercial feasibility through co-development with end users, with outcomes of technical prototypes demonstrating proof of commercial concept that are supported by a clear evidence base which provides greater confidence for external investment (post-TRL 5).

Funding is via a two stage process. This call is seeking high quality well defined proposals that require demonstrating proof of concept with the aim of developing a commercially viable product.
