The previous analysis of the product’s value chain will sustain the project’s pertinence from lab to field and will be finalised by an economic maturation and technology transfer approach (from research to market). The core of this maturation activity (WP4) will be driven by joint collaboration between academic laboratories (CBS, JKI, INSAT), techno-parks, private incubators, NGO and SMEs (BBU, BIPCA, MEDIS, WSU) from Europe and Tunisia, sharing knowledge and ideas from research to market. WP4 will run throughout the project, starting with a market, technological and regulatory assessment, and will be fed by the Dissemination and Exploitation Plan and IPR management strategy from WP6, with the following results :
- the economic maturation of the product,
- Business plan (BP) preparation and feasibility study for spin-off creation.
