The Technology Transfer Voucher makes it easy for businesses to work with research organisations on research and development (R&D) projects.
The voucher is available to businesses that need external expertise to answer their R&D questions.
Vouchers are aimed at businesses requiring R&D expertise in high value manufacturing and services as this sector is being targeted by Government for economic growth.
Fourteen accredited R&D partners provide research expertise in these areas:
- Novel materials, manufacturing and applications.
- Health and medical technologies.
- Information, communications and digital technologies.
Is the voucher right for you?
- Is your business based in New Zealand?
- Is your business developing products or enhancing existing ones?
- Do you need external expertise for your R&D project?
- Is your business new to working with a research organisation on a significant project?
Then the Technology Transfer Voucher could be right for you.
