Collaborative Research and Development Grants (CRD) support well-defined research projects conducted in partnership with the private sector. In these projects, the investment of the partner goes beyond that of simple interest.

The partner must not only invest monetarily, but also in terms of human and/or biological resources. To succeed it is necessary to have a minimum of preliminary results or proof of concept to target specific and compatible objectives between the university research team and the private sector.
