FUSION is a programme aimed to mentor and support financially researchers and their industrial partners interested in taking an idea to the market. The program is divided into two main programmes: the Commercialisation Voucher Programme and the Technology Development Programme.

The Commercialisation Voucher Programme works by providing vouchers which are primarily intended to satisfy the requirements of the FUSION Technology Development Programme. Vouchers are provided to pay service providers offering an IP check, Market research, Product Development Costing, Economic Impact and Risk Profile.

The focus is on innovative research, knowledge transfer and establishing collaborations between (1) Public Entities and (2) Industry with the intention of commercialising the technology developed.
