IDEA Support Program (5LET) <ul><li>Goal: To accelerate the process from the invention to the </li></ul><ul><li>product development </li></ul><ul><li>3 phases: each phase builds upon the previous one </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I. Project development phase (max. 3 months) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>II. R&D phase (max. 12 months) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>III. Experimental development phase (max. 24 months) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Eligible applicants: I./II. Phases – individuals, enterprises </li></ul><ul><li> III. Phase – only enterprises </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation: project report evaluated by the Program </li></ul><ul><li> Committee at the end of each phase </li></ul><ul><li>Subsidy: increasing financial support </li></ul>
    12. 12. Technology Incubator Program (TIP) <ul><li>Goal: To strengthen the business utilization of R&D results </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It is not about incubator houses! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is based on international experiences including the Israeli Technology Incubator Program </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Objectives: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To create technology incubators that operate as private companies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To promote R&D and business activities of technology-based, start-up companies to develop innovative and marketable products </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology and business incubation of start-up companies by the involvement of venture capital and business interest through technology incubators </li></ul></ul>
