TETRA projects translate scientific knowledge or explore the application domain of new technologies or methods. They provide concrete information that fits in the everyday practice of Flemish enterprises (SMEs and social profit organisations). The projects are aimed at increasing their innovation potential to ensure that they can develop new products, services or processes faster. These, in turn, offer potential to improve the economic performance of the company.
The projects are carried out by researchers affiliated with third-level institutions or universities and receive 92.5% in grant aid. The companies commit to actively support the project and to co-finance it (7.5%), and aim to achieve an optimum project result that they can exploit rapidly.
