The project will be oriented to obtain:
• Coating formula optimization
• Certificationfor the sale of COOKSAFE coating and products coated with COOKSAFE
• Development of innovative production lines
The FS confirms the uniqueness of our solution, its technical feasibility and commercial profitability even in a pessimistic scenario. In addition, COOKSAFE has already the support and interest of our most loyal clients, who have expressed their enthusiasm in our product through letters of interest.
Technical feasibility – Work Plan Definition, including: customer pain; SoA assessment; technology description; product application, testing and validation; objectives for TRL9; work plan definition; analysis of risks and preventive actions.
Commercial feasibility, including: market overview; end user’s definition; market segmentation, value and trends; PESTEL, SWOT and Porter’s 5 forces analysis; market barriers and mitigation measures; legal and regulatory requirements; IPR strategy and FtO; strategy for knowledge protection; commercialization plan; exploitation, dissemination and communication strategies.
