CSIT Technology Innovation Fund (TIF)
Seeing the importance of tapping the energy and creativity of individuals, companies and research institutions outside CSIT, we set up the Technology Innovation Fund to sponsor innovative R&D on challenging infocomm technology problems regardless of locality and nationality.
Our aim is the transfer, not ownership, of technology. The intellectual properties developed through the projects we fund remain with the inventors. Through appropriate funding mechanisms, we structure win-win relationships that do not undermine the flexibility needed to undertake risky R&D involving fresh approaches or ideas. For research which requires more modest funding, we have introduced a simplified contract which may be applied where appropriate.
Besides offering funding and the opportunity to work on challenging infocomm technology problems, CSIT can provide access to the defence community and our own in-house technical experts who can enhance and value-add to your ideas. Most importantly, we are a ready customer.
If you are looking for funding to carry out R&D on technology problems in one of the following technology tracks, we want to hear from you.
Technology tracks of interest to us are:
• Advanced information processing and analysis
• Signal processing
• Communications system engineering
• Info-communications security
• Computer Security
