The Science and Technology Park (STP) component of the East London Industrial Development Zone (ELIDZ) was established to contribute towards the ELIDZ’s vision of becoming a catalyst for growing a strong regional industrial base, supported by a business ecosystem that serves to extend the global competitiveness of local industries.
The ELIDZ Science and Technology Park in partnership with the Department of Economic Development Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEDEAT) and the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA) call on all Eastern Cape Agro-innovation entrepreneurs with ideas/products/prototypes that need support to respond to this Expression of Interest (EOI).
Through this call, Eastern Cape entrepreneurs, SMMEs and/or Start-Ups will have the opportunity to get support for technology/product development, market testing, demonstration and validation in real market and operational settings, thereby enabling exploitation and market uptake of locally developed innovative products and technology solutions.
The EOI is aimed at facilitating an enabling environment for the advancement of technology innovation and commercialisation by adopting a value chain approach which is in line with the Eastern Cape Provincial agro Industry Development Plan which also aims to drive economic growth and socio-economic development in the province.
