Type of action: ECSEL Innovation Action
Description: Action primarily consisting of activities directly aiming at producing plans and arrangements or designs for new, altered or improved products, processes or services. For this purpose
they may include prototyping, testing, demonstrating, piloting, large-scale product validation and market replication.
A ‘demonstration or pilot’ aims to validate the technical and economic viability of a new or improved technology, product, process, service or solution in an operational (or near to operational) environment,
whether industrial or otherwise, involving where appropriate a larger scale prototype or demonstrator.
A ‘market replication’ aims to support the firstapplication/deployment in the market of an innovation that has already been demonstrated but not yet applied/deployed in the market due to market
failures/barriers to uptake. ‘Market replication’ does not cover multiple applications in the market of an innovation 4 that has already been applied successfully once in the market. ‘First’ means new at least to Europe or new at least to the application sector in question. Often such projects involve a validation of technical and economic performance at system level in real life operating conditions provided by the market.
