The call for applications for Tandem Industry Academia (TIA) 2021 closed on 25 April 2021 and the Foundation received 80 applications. The TIA funding model has been developed by FRIF with a view to encouraging ambitious precompetitive projects that further the aims of both leading-edge academic research and business and industry.
This was the second round of TIA funding calls. The first TIA call in 2020 attracted 92 eligible applications, and 11 successful two-year projects received a total of two million euros in funding from FRIF.
The Foundation is looking to award funding to roughly the same number of projects in the spring 2021 call. The funding decisions will be made public in August 2021.
