I was commissioned as an external expert advisor to EU Horizon 2020 CloudWatch to assist with helping grant funded R&D projects achieve market readiness for the commercial exploitation of their innovation.

The outcome of that work was my creation of the Market and Technology Readiness Framework (MTRL).

What is that?

MTRL is used by R&D project leaders and investors to understand their current level of progress in the lifecycle from ideation through to commercial exploitation at scale.

In 2019 I was accredited as the inventor of record for MTRL and gifted my invention to Oxford University Innovation for non-commercial exploitation by academia.

You can read about how MTRL is used by R&D projects with examples of how it has been used by CloudWatch2 projects when you click here.
