  • innovation to encourage new products and technologies
  • infrastructure to encourage capital investments in new products, processes or technologies
  • science partnerships between industry, academia, and other research institutions to improve our knowledge

Applications will be accepted until all available funding for the fiscal year has been allocated to projects. Funding will become available again in the next fiscal year.
