Industry and services

The portfolio board is to promote the ability and willingness of industry and service industries to innovate by providing funding for R&D projects that are based on companies’ own strategies and challenges. The portfolio board is to work to achieve closer interplay between research organisations, trade and industry and the public sector.

The board is to help to increase value creation by building a new, knowledge-based industrial sector and through renewal and restructuring of established trade and industry. The portfolio board is to work together with other industry-oriented boards.
