RDI 3 – Objective Evidence. Is it problematic if there is no independent evidence to support the claim for a project?

Absolutely not. Many projects will be eligible where there is no third party evidence. Please note that the evidence must be independent and give a strong indication that the project represents a scientific or technological advance. If the index is lower than 50% and there is no evidence the company could consider seeking an expert validation (see Expert Support). However, there is no guarantee that this will generate a positive outcome. Please contact the RDECX team for more information.
