Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) in collaboration with Enterprise Ireland (EI) is seeking to fund researchers who are at the initial stages of developing a new or innovative technology, product, process or service with strong commercial potential. The SFI TIDA Programme is designed to enable researchers to focus on the initial stages of an applied research project which may have a commercial benefit if further developed. The TIDA programme enables researchers to demonstrate the technical feasibility of an applied research project directed toward the development of a new or innovative technology, product, process or service that has potential for further commercial development.
The TIDA 2018 call is open to:
- Independent Investigators who are Lead Principal or Co-Principal Investigators responsible for a competitively awarded, internationally peer reviewed research grant secured over the last 5 years (2013-2018);
- Postdoctoral researchers (with a maximum of 8 year’s postdoctoral research experience) currently funded under a competitively awarded, internationally peer reviewed research grant.
Full details of the call including key dates are available on the SFI website.
