Technology Enhancement Intervention
EoI No: 002/23/09/2019

The aim of the Marine Manufacturing and Repairs Supplier Development Programme (MMRSDP) is to make targeted interventions in partnership with marine system or component manufacturers to improve industry competitiveness. The programme will be coordinated by the dti’s Industrial Development Division and hosted, managed and implemented by the CSIR, through the AISI. The programme aims to assist marine manufacturers to address issues that might hinder or prevent their participation in the marine value chain locally or internationally. The programme could benefit suppliers of systems or components from other (non-marine) sectors by providing new opportunities within the marine sector, or open new markets for existing marine suppliers.

The programme aims to provide assistance in addressing issues related to:

  • Standards and Certifications
  • Technology Enhancement

Note: Potential beneficiaries may apply for support from both interventions (Standards and Certifications and Technology Enhancements).

Kindly find the EoI guidelines for both Standards and Certifications and Technology Enhancements, as well as the response templates that must be completed in response to the EoI’s.
