The R&I Scheme seeks to support R&I projects whose objectives are in line with national policies and seek to contribute in a tangible manner to addressing one of the following:

  1. A national policy priority or challenge in the energy and water sectors; or
  2. Economic competitiveness and growth in a variety of national sectors, from an energy and water perspective.

The selection and funding of proposals under this Scheme shall be on a competitive basis.

The focus is on projects at oriented-basic research and applied research to experimental design stage, that is projects at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 2-6, with a duration ranging between eighteen and twenty-four (18-24) months.

Target projects may fall in a range of disciplines, from engineering and natural sciences to social and behavioural sciences, big data and artificial intelligence.

Seven overarching topics have been identified as priority areas for support. Preference for financial support will be given to the highest scoring proposals within these priority areas; there is no order of preference of the priority areas.
