The TIDA is an SFI programme 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. In the context of supporting researchers who wish to pursue the commercialisation of a technology, TIDA offers a number of important features:
- Validation by independent international peer review process
- €100k in project funding for technology development
- Entrepreneurship and commercialisation training
Duration: 12 months
