Commercialising R&D results (FORNY2020)

Deadline Announcement
The programme does not contain active announcements

Messages:

A list with the project titles of all applications under processing will be published on the Research Council website.

In connection with the application review, the project summary may be forwarded to potential referees when asking whether they can assess the grant application. The project title and project summary should therefore not disclose sensitive information.

Objectives:

The primary objective of the FORNY2020 programme is to increase value creation by ensuring that R&D results from publicly funded Norwegian research institutions are brought to the market.

Secondary objectives

  • To generate growth in new and existing companies by selecting and funding projects that are expected to lead to substantial commercial returns or be of some other major benefit to society.
  • To encourage the establishment of professional, efficient and specialised technology transfer offices (TTOs) associated with publicly funded research institutions.

The programme supports the commercialisation of R&D results generated by researchers and students alike and will promote innovation within all disciplines and business areas as well as in both the public and social sectors. Results may have their origin in publicly funded research institutions alone or in collaborative projects involving trade and industry.  

The programme gives priority to the following types of support: proof-of-concept funding; local funding for projects of TTOs; measures to enhance structure and promote network-building and competence-building at TTOs; and student entrepreneur projects.
