The development pathway for new technologies is frequently described in terms of technology readiness levels (TRLs), which give a common reference point when considering the level of development a given technology has achieved. This diagram shows activity typically associated with each TRL, from a theoretical case at one end of the scale through to commercialisation at the other.
