Applications for the NITDA Fourth Industrial Revolution Technology Programme 2023-2024 are open now. The 4IRTA is the platform that NITDA uses to conduct pilot projects utilizing 4IR technologies (Blockchain, IoT, AI, and UAVs) across several economic sectors.
NITDA Fourth Industrial Revolution Technology Programme 2023-2024 (up to N10,000,000)
These initiatives are intended to serve as test cases to demonstrate how these technologies can be successfully applied in Nigeria. The reward for excellent academic performance is given out every two years and is generously financed by the Hamdan bin Rasid AI Maktoum Foundation (Hamdan Foundation).
- Selected pilot farms will receive assistance from the Ministry of Agriculture, which will also help them find a route towards sustainability and scalability.
- Up to N10,000,000 in financing will be awarded to projects that demonstrate a deeper integration of 4IR technology into their operations.
- The ten projects that were chosen are anticipated to be centered on the use of blockchain, IoT, AI, and UAV in various agricultural subsectors, such as crop production, fisheries, livestock, and forestry.
- Project submissions must show how 4IR technology can be used to raise Nigeria’s agricultural output and sustainability.
The following standards will be used to evaluate applications:
- Technical viability, combined with a growth strategy, is feasibility.
- Sustainability is a well-defined strategy for enduring success in the long run.
- Impacts: farmers may have considerable social and economic gains as a result.
- Innovative uses of 4IR technology to raise agricultural yields are one example of innovation.
The project is currently accepting applications, which must be completed online by December 7, 2023, the deadline. The chosen candidates will be notified no sooner than six weeks following the deadline.
- The deadline for receipt of applications is December 7, 2023.
