Technology Innovation Development Award (TIDA) Feasibility Study 2011
The Science Foundation Ireland/Enterprise Ireland TIDA Feasibility Study award is designed to enable researchers to focus on the first steps of an applied research project which may have a commercial benefit if further developed.
Convergent applications from researchers within different disciplines are also encouraged. Following completion of the TIDA feasibility study, researchers should be in a position to demonstrate the technical viability and robustness of their project in the context of competing technologies and market potential.
It is envisaged that successful TIDA awardees will initiate commercially relevant applied research programmes, develop the commercial expertise within their laboratories and be primed at the end of their awards to apply for more significant levels of commercialisation funding.
Closing date 22nd July 2011.
