ITIDA Accepts 13 Projects in ITAC 29th Round



The Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) has received 42 project proposals from 18 Egyptian universities and 19 IT companies, for the 29th round of the Collaborative Funded Projects (CFP) program, one of the Information Technology Academia Collaboration (ITAC) programs.
 
The proposals came from different governorates, including Cairo, Alexandria, Aswan, Menoufia and Minya. Out of the 42 proposals, 13 were accepted, eight of which as Preliminary Research Projects (PRP), two as Advanced Research Projects (ARP) and three as Product Development Projects (PDP).
 
CFP aims to move a product concept out of the ideas shed, through the proof-of-concept and prototyping stages, until it turns into a complete product ready to hit the market. The objectives of the program include unlocking research potential in local universities and technology institutes; developing research capabilities in research centers within companies; creating innovative, yet competitive products for both society and marketplace; connecting scientific research institutes with industry entities; and boosting the national income.
 
It is worth mentioning that the call for submissions for the 29th round was open from September to October 2020. Submission for round 30, however, was open from March to April 2021, with the round still in progress.
