Types of Funding
- Feasibility Study – Companies can conduct preliminary investigations to determine the technical feasibility and market acceptability of a new product or process concept. SIIRD can fund up to US$30,000 or 50% of the qualifying costs for conducting feasibility tests, whichever is lower. Such awards are made with the understanding that a formal proposal for a full-scale project will be submitted by the companies, should the feasibility results prove positive.
- Mini R&D Project – Companies can embark on joint R&D project where the total qualifying cost is not more than US$400,000 and project duration is not more than one year. SIIRD can fund up to US$200,000 or 50% of the qualifying costs, whichever is lower. This funding type is for companies interested in defining an initial project of modest size rather than plunging into a higher cost full-scale project of longer duration. While the proposal preparation for Mini R&D Project may be less stringent than those associated with a full-scale project, the same criteria regarding business/technical capabilities and commercial potential are applicable. Commercialization is an expected goal for such projects. Once approved, mini-projects are implemented under the same agreements as full-scale projects.
- Full-Scale R&D Project – For joint R&D project of larger scale where the maximum project duration is three years, SIIRD can fund up to 50% of the qualifying costs or between US$200,000 and US$1,000,000 (not more than US$500,000 in one year), whichever is lower. Commercialization is also an expected goal for full scale R&D projects.
