An error occurred in the Microsoft .NET Framework while trying to load assembly

I received this error after deployment of a new Sql CLR function:

An error occurred in the Microsoft .NET Framework while trying to load assembly id 65545. The server may be running out of resources, or the assembly may not be trusted with PERMISSION_SET = EXTERNAL_ACCESS or UNSAFE. Run the query again, or check documentation to see how to solve the assembly trust issues. For more information about this error:
System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly ‘sqlclr, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null’ or one of its dependencies. An error relating to security occurred. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8013150A)
System.IO.FileLoadException:
at System.Reflection.Assembly._nLoad(AssemblyName fileName, String codeBase, Evidence assemblySecurity, Assembly locationHint, StackCrawlMark& stackMark, Boolean throwOnFileNotFound, Boolean forIntrospection)
at System.Reflection.Assembly.InternalLoad(AssemblyName assemblyRef, Evidence assemblySecurity, StackCrawlMark& stackMark, Boolean forIntrospection)
at System.Reflection.Assembly.InternalLoad(String assemblyString, Evidence assemblySecurity, StackCrawlMark& stackMark, Boolean forIntrospection)
at System.Reflection.Assembly.Load(String assemblyString)

I found the following solution that seems to work:

Turn on the Trustworthy flag on the database you are deploying to using:

ALTER DATABASE YOURDATABASENAME
SET TRUSTWORTHY ON

After that the clr assembly should have no problem running.
