  • Production system
  • Technology Transfer
  • R & D
  • Project Management

Eligibility Criteria

  • The partners involved must include one Irish registered agri food company and one local commercial entity in Africa.

  • Projects will be supported in the following countries – Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Malawi, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.
  • Funding from the AADF must bring about additionality and not replace existing funding.
  • AADP funding is up to a maximum up to a maximum of €250,000 per company for a full project or €100,000 for a feasibility study.
