Ayming’s Expertise in Navigating SR&ED for AI Innovation: A Case Study


In the fast-paced world of food production, innovation is key to staying ahead of the curve. One company took a bold step towards revolutionizing their operations by harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to optimize recipe setpoints via AI innovation. However, navigating the complexities of the Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) claim process proved to be a daunting task. This case study highlights how Ayming, a leading SR&ED and Government Grants consultancy firm, played a pivotal role in guiding this company through the intricate SR&ED landscape. It also showcases the transformative potential of expert guidance in innovation funding.

Project Overview

In 2023, a prominent food production company embarked on a groundbreaking project centered around AI-driven efficiency. Their goal?
