How the selection process works?
Initial selection of projects is done by the Fund Project Team. The team review all applications for eligibility, innovation, feasibility and impact. Applicants may be invited to take part in video interview. The assessment phase is concluded with the Project Team approving Prototype and Medium track funding applications, and making recommendations about the Large projects to the Fund Council.
