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.
