DREAM: Methodology for Market Replication
According to the EU Commission, a ‘market replication’ assessment aims to support the first application/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 aims to:
- Develop a comprehensive feasibility study on a project technologies transferability to other process industries
- Raising interest among other process industries stakeholders
- Develop a strategy to cross-fertilise the whole SPIRE industrial community through project exploitable results
- Maximising the impact of the project, especially focusing on the European area
- Fostering cooperation and exchanges between European countries and to create synergies in basic and applied research regarding the project exploitable results.
Within DREAM Project, the partners have developed a reliable and transferable methodology to boost the market replication of exploitable results. The methodology consists in the following steps:
- Overview of the exploitable results obtained with market replication potential
- Preliminary identification of SPIRE sectors with market replication potential for exploitable results
- Analysis of the relationships between the project publications and the sectors of interest
- Analysis of the presence of the project technologies for each sector of interest
- Identification of the sectors with the greatest potential for market replication for each result
- Search for NACE codes for statistics (EUROSTAT data)
The DREAM project (Design for Resource and Energy efficiency in cerAMic kilns) aims to design, develop and demonstrate a radically improved architecture for ceramic industrial kilns, characterised by optimised energy consumption, reduced emissions, and lower operating costs compared to currently available technological solutions.
