1. Capital equipment:

      • New equipment including devices, machines and tools
      • State-of-the-art second-hand manufacturing plant and equipment; and 

2. Reconfiguration costs including the re-modelling or restructuring of a manufacturing production line.

Grants are awarded on a competitive, merit-based process.
