The educational module

For each of these stages of the biomarker value chain, the fact sheets propose:

  • a short description of key requirements to address the next stage 
  • the questions to be listed, the issues to be taken into consideration or the selection criteria

What is the correlation between the value chain
and the TRL (Technology readiness level)?

Patent application, which constitutes a key moment during this development path, needs to be addressed with the valorisation structures ad hoc. Nevertheless, in order to qualify the development stage of the project in particular when looking for funds and/or partnerships, a scale of technological readiness (the TRL scale, Technology Readiness Level) adapted to (bio)drugs is proposed. Furthermore, the corresponding levels of development are shown in the different fact sheets. The correspondence with the BMK TOOLS® value chain is represented below.
