R&D funds are part of the program benefits for Silver, Gold and Platinum partners. They are considered an investment towards developing new apps, entering a new OS, etc. Approved uses of R&D funds may include purchasing new devices (i.e Amazon tablet, iphone, emulator license) and developer costs. The allocated funds are per fiscal year, and will be paid upon submission of an R&D plan by the Partner and approval by Bright Data, in its sole discretion.
