There is no automatic entitlement for funding.
In principle, the DSI does not support any hardware (e.g. tablets). Nor can the DSI finance the development of products or services. The Board of Directors decides on the support, using the DSI’s strategic funds, according to the following criteria A-I. Fulfilment of these criteria does not constitute a legal entitlement to funding.
