Technology Competence Centres (TCC) are registered in the Estonian business Register. They are companies whose main activity is conducting research in the areas that are necessary for companies to conduct product development. The results of the research projects will be used by companies to bring new products and services to the market.
TCCs have infrastructure, research staff and sectoral expertise for implementing the R&D projects. The TCC programme started in 2004. The programme is financed by the European Union Regional Development Fund.
