About the Technology readiness levels (TRL)

Our innovations descriptions contain information about their current TRL (Technology readiness level). At NorthWind, we apply the same TRL as the European Commission. These are:

  • TRL 1 – Basic principles observed
  • TRL 2 – Technology concept formulated
  • TRL 3 – Experimental proof of concept
  • TRL 4 – Technology validated in lab
  • TRL 5 – Technology validated in relevant environment
  • TRL 6 – Technology demonstrated in relevant environment
  • TRL 7 – System prototype demonstration in operational environment
  • TRL 8 – System complete and qualified
  • TRL 9 – Actual system proven in operational environment
