What is TLR: Technology Readiness Level?

October marks a new cycle of the Campus 5 O’Clock Talk sessions: an event that takes place every third Thursday of each month and whose aim is to inform about actual and relevant themes.

Last October 20, at 17pm, Health Innovation Hub and Start up Leiria – Inovação Social, placed at the Campus 5 of the Polytechnic of Leiria, welcomed all of the interested people to hear more about technology readiness level (TLR), in an hybrid session.

Sara Dias and Maria João Batalha, researchers of ciTechCare, pointed out the importance of transferring scientific knowledge into business companies, the difference between the 9 TLR and which TLR are, actually, eligible to be submitted into the voucher’s tenders which is still on course until October 31.

One of the main goals was to inform about how a project can get funding according its technology readiness level.

Polytechnic of Leiria and Polytechnic of Cávado and Ave will support, each one, two concluded or nearing completion I&D projects with strong economic value evidence, in TLR 5 or 6, in the amount of 10 000€.
