  • Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of at least 5 at the beginning of the project, corresponding to a “technology validated in relevant environment”. The technology is expected to have reached a TRL of at least 7 at the end of the project, corresponding to a “system prototype demonstration in operational environment”.
  • Are requested to reach a non-EIT(KCAs+co-funding)/EIT funding ratio of 80/20.
  • The co-funding contributed by the project consortium should be minimum 30% of the total funding.

  • At the start of the project, EIT RawMaterials will discuss with the Commercialisation partner a strategyfor the financial sustainability of the KIC: Alternative co-finding; Co-commercialisation or Additional co-funding.
  • Proposals claiming to achieve any positive environmental impact, such as resource and energy savings, waste reduction, waste valorization, emissions reduction, etc., must include a Work Package on the assessment of the environmental impacts of the developed products or processes using LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) methodologies
  • Upscaling projects need to be based on a solid market analysis, covering important aspects such as the business environment (e.g., technical, regulatory, social, environmental and political aspects, user needs and targeted applications, customer value proposition, target market(s) (e.g., size, structure, growth potential, segmentation), risk assessment, design or market studies, and intellectual property exploration. A preliminary market analysis must be included in the proposal and will be the basis for the Go-to-market strategy that will be developed in Work Package 0 (WP0) during the project. The Go-to-market strategy will be updated throughout the duration of the project and enable go/no-go decisions following annual reviews.
