The Technology Innovation Agency (TIA) was established in terms of the TIA Act 26 of 2008, with the objective of stimulating and intensifying technological innovation in order to improve economic growth and the quality of life of all South Africans. This is achieved by developing and exploiting technological innovations. The TIA is a national public entity that serves as the key institutional intervention to bridge the innovation chasm between research and development from higher education institutions, science councils, public entities and private sectors, and commercialisation.
The vision of the TIA is to be a leading technology innovation agency that stimulates and supports technological innovation to improve the quality of life for all South Africans. Its mission is to facilitate the translation of South Africa’s knowledge resources into sustainable socio-economic opportunities.
