DAERA Research Challenge Fund

The DAERA Research Challenge Fund (RCF) is a key element of the DAERA Evidence and Innovation Strategy.




What is the DAERA Research Challenge Fund?

It gives small and medium sized businesses from the agri-food and other rural sectors an opportunity to get help with research and development. By providing grant assistance of up to 50% of eligible costs for research funding, the RCF seeks to encourage industry-led consortia to get involved in research projects.

This scheme is now open for applications and will close at 5pm on Friday 26 May 2017.  

An information awareness session will be held on Wednesday 22 March 2017 at 10am in Greenmount Campus.

Please register your interest in attending the information awareness session by emailing rcf@daera-ni.gov.uk
