The Centres for Research-based Innovation scheme
The Centres for Research-based Innovation are to develop expertise in fields of importance for innovation and value creation. Through long-term research conducted in close collaboration between research-performing companies and prominent research groups, the SFI centres are to enhance technology transfer, internationalisation and researcher training. The SFI centres may receive support for a total of eight years (an initial five-year period with the possibility of a three-year extension). We are planning an announcement of SFI-V in 2024 with the start-up of an estimated seven to nine new centres in autumn 2025. There will be more information about this in the fall of 2023.
