Technology Readiness Level Scale

We use the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) scale, based on NASA’s template, to determine the stage of a project.

In general, but not exclusively, OGIC funds projects at TRLs 2-6. Many projects involve establishing proof of concept, and some will go on to prototype development.

Our activity and support help academia and business collaborate to bridge the gap between academic research and commercial development, and de-risk this crucial but precarious part of the innovation journey.
 

Outside our usual TRL range?

If you come to us with a project idea that doesn’t match OGIC’s criteria, we will help to signpost you to another organisation.
