Business Setup

Collaborative Funded Projects
Information Technology Academia Collaboration (ITAC), an ITIDA initiative, developed the Collaborative Funded Projects (CFP) program to promote university-industry collaboration.

ITAC subsidizes these three CFP categories to build an innovative knowledge economy:
-    Product Development Projects (PDP)
-    Advanced Research Projects (ARP)
-    Preliminary Research Projects (PRP)

CFP aims to turn a product concept, through proof-of-concept and prototyping stages, into a complete product ready to hit the market. Starting-points and endpoints are:

Proof-of-concept is a solid work owned by the applicant.
Prototype is a working, but not necessarily complete, product.
Final product should satisfy all commercial specs and should be ready to go to market by the end of PDP.

CFPs are built to:
1) Develop research potential at universities,
2) Create innovative products at companies,
3) Bring research together with industry, and
4) Contribute to boosting the national income.
