R&D is about discovering the unknown. It seeks to resolve scientific or technological uncertainty and, in doing so, it can give your business a competitive edge.
To qualify for the RDTI, your R&D must occur in New Zealand and follow a systematic approach. It needs to address an uncertainty that a competent professional in the relevant field cannot resolve without undertaking a systematic course of investigation. Also, the knowledge required to resolve your uncertainty cannot be publicly available.
If now is the time to reset or revitalise your R&D programme, you’ve come to the right place.
