Identifying core, supporting and ineligible activities
Framing your project using RDTI activity criteria
In a real world R&D project, there will be many activities taking place that all contribute towards the project's goal. However, from the RDTI perspective these activities will fall into different categories, and not all will meet the RDTI eligibility criteria.
The diagram below shows how a typical R&D project will likely comprise a mix of eligible core, eligible supporting and ineligible activities.
The example shown is for a project that involves developing a security system for a building site, using AI facial recognition, a cloud-based server and cameras to identify personnel.
