Knowledge-building Project for Industry

We will have new portfolios from 1 January 2024. The thematic areas in our calls reflect the new portfolios. You will therefore find that some research topics lie under new thematic areas. Under this call, this applies in particular to the following: 

  • The research topic Petroleum is under the thematic area Energy and transport 

We reserve the right to make possible changes to the call for proposals after we have received the letter of allocation for 2024.

We unfortunately made the mistake of writing that the time period for support for postdoctoral fellowships is between "two and four years". The new Act relating to Universities and University Colleges (which is expected to come into force from 1.1.25) requires postdoctoral fellows to be employed for three to four years, and the Research Council has already introduced this rule. You can read more here. The call text has been updated with this correction.
If you have already included a postdoctoral fellowship of less than three years in the application and are not able to change this before the application deadline, you will have the opportunity to incorporate this change in the event that we enter into a contract. At the same time, we emphasise that the requirement applies to the duration of the post-doctoral period, and not to the number of man-years. This may, for example, mean that the Research Council's funding for a postdoctoral fellow may remain two years even if the candidate is employed for three years, with salary funding from another source in one of the years.


The purpose of the funding is to encourage research organisations to cooperate with trade and industry to generate knowledge that business and industry and society need to solve major societal and business challenges. We require the business sector to provide cash financing for the projects.
