Proof of Concept Funding - TPF Pilot Programme

Proof of Concept Funding Pilot Programme (TPF)
Thursday, March 19, 2020 - 15:15

The TTSI Pipeline Fund (TPF) is a very early research development support that can be used to:

  • Create technical feasibility studies and evaluate Intellectual Property (IP) development of inventions;
  • Further technical development of an idea and/or results emerging from research to improve the IP position and/or allow for better quality IP to be protected;
  • Validate the market/business opportunity for new ideas, products or processes and assess the potential business proposition 

The MU-AIT-ITC-WIT Technology Transfer Consortium has been awarded €90k to pilot a TPF programme, funded by Knowledge Transfer Ireland (Enterprise Ireland).
 
NOTE: TPF projects must be completed within 6 months of being funded (budget of €5k - €15k; all eligible costs detailed in the TPF Principles and Guidelines).
 
Application submission deadline is 5pm on 27th March 2020.
