ENERGIX awards half a billion NOK to new projects for environmentally friendly energy

The Research Council of Norways ENERGIX-programme awards 52 new R&D projects. 27 of which are led by industry actors, who also take part in 16 projects for building industry relevant competence in academia.

The 27 innovation projects for the industry are awarded a total of 179 million NOK, and the industry actors contribute an equal or even greater part.

In addition the 16 projects for building industry relevant competence in academia are awarded 171 million NOK from the Research Council of Norway. Industry actors will also fund 20 % of the total cost of these projects.

There has also been awarded 9 research projects with no demands for industry involvement this call, for a total of 94 million NOK. The Research Council also contributes 50 million NOK to the PILOT-E call and 30 million NOK for New energy Concepts (final projects are elected in February).

Further process

In the beginning of January, the formal letters are distributed to all applicants.

Although many are awarded the total sum they applied for, many are also awarded a reduced amount. We will inform the applicants of this as soon as possible.

Here is the list of the awarded projects (in Norwegian)
