Upscaling KAVA projects are innovation projects based on validated technologies that need additional step(s) for testing, demonstration, proof of concept and up-scaling prior to commercialization. The technology must be at Technology Readiness Level (TRL1) of at least 6 at the beginning of the project and at the end of the project, the technology is expected to have reached a TRL of at least 8, corresponding to a “system prototype demonstration in operational environment”.

The purpose of these projects is to support good technologies, products, and services that are currently under development to reach market entry. The upscaling Projects must aim for market introduction and/or a commercial use within 2 years or less after the end of Project, and shorter time for market introduction and/or a commercial use will be favourably evaluated. 

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)
