Research, innovation and development activities concern (without being limiting) the following sectors :
1) Nature of eligible projects
There are 2 categories of projects applying for funding :
Each team develops its research or innovation project around a theme or a problem previously identified and launched in a call for projects. These themes or issues generally come from the Strategic Plan of FONRID, CNRST or stakeholders and users.
2) Terms and conditions
3) Project evaluation process
Generally, after the launch of the call for projects (in local newspapers, posters, etc.), candidate teams submit a project concept note (PCN) of 4 pages maximum. The NCP is pre-assessed by experts and if it is accepted, the team is called upon to write the complete project (PC) and to attach all the documents required for a complete file. This file is then submitted to CST experts who assess it. If the CST's verdict is positive and validated by the Board, then the team is officially notified and proceeds to sign an agreement with FONRID to begin the implementation of its activities.
