The STUD-ENT scheme is the Research Council’s national competitive arena in which students, in cooperation with institutions of higher education, may seek financial support for student-driven business ideas within and across different subject fields.

The STUD-ENT scheme aims to help to increase entrepreneurship among students by promoting business ideas that have a close link to promising research results, enhancing the ability to implement projects, and cultivating students as role models to foster an entrepreneurship culture in institutions of higher education.

The educational system has a key role to play in encouraging young people to become innovative entrepreneurs and participants in the work force. In light of this, the ambition of the STUD-ENT scheme is twofold:

  1. To encourage entrepreneurship among students and increase the number of entrepreneurs and successful companies based on the knowledge students have obtained through their studies.
  2. To promote a culture for innovation and entrepreneurship in the university and university college sector.

The STUD-ENT scheme is intended for individuals who are at the start of their careers and who wish to test their entrepreneurship skills.

This call is open to project proposals within all thematic areas.
