Drawing funding and financing scenarios for effective implementation of Smart Specialisation Strategies

Doussineau, Mathieu; Arregui-Pabollet, Eskarne; Harrap, Nicholas; Merida, Fernando
This report uses the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) framework to characterise the different funding that is available. The major bottlenecks in the innovation process that can arise through the lack of appropriate funding are discussed along with the background and the utility and criticisms of the TRL. The use of TRL to characterise and map research and innovation in the EU provides a useful framework. However, there is a need to broaden the scope of TRL to include commercialisation of new products and services and scale-up business capacities. Furthermore, it is limited by its technology focus, while innovation can embrace many aspects beyond the purely technological.
