The objective of this Session is for dti, DST and TIA representatives who manage or actively work with R&D incentives to briefly present what the incentive offers, which enterprises/projects qualify, and give guidelines on effective application and claims. Incentives on the programme include SPII, THRIP, TIA and the 11d rebate. The programme will allow time for Q&A, discussion and feedback, and COVA will make an input from their research looking at effective R&D incentives in other countries. Finally, dti will introduce the Strategic Partnership Programme which provides co-funding for supply chain development – a focus area for MEMSA in 2018. MEMSA Members and the first presenter are asked to arrive by 8.45 for a prompt start at 9.
