Nowadays, research has had a fundamental role for the economic development and growth of economies at a worldwide level. Research has contributed with new ideas, studies, implementations and innovations, which requires an effective validation to be launched for production or exploitation. Thereby, it is important for entrepreneurs to have new technical and business tools, such as frameworks to help them in the evaluation and validation of such new technologies development. In this article, a methodology to analyse the economic viability of the involvement of companies in research projects is presented. However, the focus of this work is about to propose a framework for its technological research results assessment for one of its phases. This phase intends to ensure an efficient validation approach, which supported by an effective change management of the research results appliance, would result in a favourable condition for their successful exploration. Authors proposed a framework that was tested in the evaluation of a research project pilot through an execution in the textile domain.
