Intrepreneurial innovation drives new business creation and corporate innovation strengthens existing business. South Africa has identified innovation as crucial for job creation and to enhance its global competitiveness.

A number of government grants and incentives have been established to encourage innovation through research and development.

These include:

  • The support program for industrial innovation (SPII) managed by the Industrial Development Corporation
  • A tax deduction allowance as stipulated by Section 11D of the Income Tax Act
  • The Technology and Human Resources for Industry Programme (THRIP), managed by the DTI and the National Research Foundation; as well as
  • The funding programmes under the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA)

This seminar will provide an overview of the grants and incentives applicable to automation and control. There will be an overview of recent successful applications, and the event will also provide the audience with a platform to assess the likelihood of their intended projects
