The University of Malta Research, Innovation & Development Trust


Welcome to the website of The University of Malta Research Innovation and Development Trust (RIDT).

RIDT aims to strengthen investment in high-calibre research and development across every faculty and department within the University, and on a national level, and to foster the commercial exploitation of this research.

It does this by attracting support from both private individuals and corporate bodies.

RIDT was established in April 2011 by the Government of Malta with the allocation of €500,000 as seed capital
