Agri-food and Cleantech
Berytech and ELCIM earmark
$100,000 for four projects
Four grants, $25,000 each, are being offered to researchers within an academic institution or research center with innovations in Agri-food (technology, engineering, food innovation) as well as Cleantech (renewable energy, waste and water valorization), with patentability or intellectual property (IP) protection potential.
This grant initiative is sponsored by Berytech and the ELCIM program at the Industrial Research Institute (IRI).
The funds are made available through the ACT Smart Innovation Hub program, co-funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Berytech.
Two grants will be given to an innovation in Agri-food and the other two will be given to an innovation in Cleantech.
The research project should lead to an independent commercial entity. The project should have reached at least an early-stage prototype development, as well as have potential for regional or international reach.
The grant will be used to cover the costs of consulting and research, development, simulation, or prototyping.
