Programme 2: Industry Development and Technology Support

This programme focuses on advancing production innovation such as the use of advanced manufacturing and other fourth industrial revolution technologies to build more durable, compact and efficient products. Access to new and existing processes, products and methods is also facilitated to ensure that beneficiaries develop products and services, which enable them to exploit multiple market opportunities. Integrators and sub-system suppliers are encouraged to include SMMEs and lower-tier suppliers in their supply chains, to enable the continuous transfer of knowledge, expertise, capabilities and technologies, and in doing so, broadening the industrial base.
