Innovation and Technology Support Programme (ITSP)
What is ITSP?
ITSP supports research and development (R&D) projects undertaken by designated local public research institutes1 and R&D Centres2. ITSP invites applications for funding once a year.
ITSP focuses on supporting two types of projects –
- Platform Projects: applied R&D projects which are industry-oriented and have potential for commercialization.
- Seed Projects: projects which are exploratory and forward-looking in nature.
Application forms and Guides
Project proposals submitted by designated local public research institutes as well as proposals on Automotive Parts and Accessory Systems under the ITSP will be considered by the Innovation and Technology Fund Research Projects Assessment Panel which advises the Commissioner for Innovation and Technology on the provision of funding support for the applications received.
The 2019 Innovation and Technology Support Programme (ITSP) is now open for application. Deadline for application is 26 April 2019.
