CTI pays the participating researchers’ salaries. The industrial partner finances its own expenditure, and makes a cash contribution to research. Contributions from industry cover project-related expenditure: setting up facilities, licences and any equipment used for research purposes.
Where it makes sense, CTI provides funding for:
- feasibility studies to define project aims and the relevant processes in concrete terms
- coordination of joint projects involving several SMEs
- measures to disseminate project results.
