DTIF Call 2 is live! There will be an information session to officially launch the Call on 5 July 2019 at the University of Limerick. You can register your interest to attend the session on eventbrite.ie/Future Jobs Pillar 1 and DTIF Call 2 launch. Please see the relevant documents including the application form and guidelines for applicants here: DTIF: Call 2 – Documentation. The deadline for applications is 18 September 2019 (3pm Irish time).
The Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund is a €500 million fund established under Project Ireland 2040 and is run by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation with administrative support from Enterprise Ireland.
In Call 1 2018 27 projects were approved for funding with many led by start-ups and SMEs. The successful projects will receive over €70 million to 2021. The successful projects represent the health, food, ICT and manufacturing sectors in Ireland.
There are some important changes to CALL 2:
– The minimum funding request from DTIF is at least €1.5 million (previously €1.0 million);
– Collaborations must have at least 3 partners (previously 2) with at least one SME and one other enterprise partner;
– Research Performing Organisations cannot receive more than 50% of the total DTIF funding in any collaboration.
If you have any questions regarding the application process, please address them to Enterprise Ireland at DTIF@enterprise-ireland.com with the subject line ‘DTIF 2019 FAQ’. Queries will be answered at the information event and through the webinar process (follow the Department on Twitter for updates – @EnterInnov). A webinar for applicants will be scheduled in JULY 2019 with materials (presentation and recording of Q&A session) available on the DTIF webpage thereafter: https://dbei.gov.ie/DTIF.
