Tailored Innovation

We support customised innovations for your target market

Are you looking to adapt your product or service to meet the demands of your international customers?

Our Tailored Innovation funding scheme supports the targeted development and international commercialisation of products and services.

As a result of contact with local stakeholders, you have the relevant insight into their specific needs and requirements and can target your product development accordingly.

Tailored Innovation can include elements of frugal innovation (e.g., reduced material input, reduced costs, adaptation, modification, etc.) and impact orientation (sustainability and social impact). It also supports the strongly needs-based development of new technologies in specific markets.
