WRC - TIA Water Seed Fund Call for Innovations addressing South Africa’s Water Challenges

The Water Research Commission (WRC) of South Africa and the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA) are launching the Water Seed Fund of up to R200,000 per project which will be made available for innovation-oriented projects conducted by Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the water sector. The closing date for applications is January 29, 2021.

Regarding the WRC - TIA Water Seed Fund, the Department of Research Administration and Development at the University of Limpopo encourages all potential applicants to submit their applications.

The objective of the WRC TIA Water Seed Fund is to support pre-seed and seed activities with the intention to develop innovations into next stage “investor fundable” opportunities. With this funding, the WRC and TIA intend to increase the rate of commercialisation of water-related intellectual property (IP) generated from South African research and development.
