Deadline: 13 June 2017
The Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD) is seeking applications for its “Open Call 2017” under its program “Grand Solutions” to strengthen knowledge-based projects, which lead to increased growth and employment in Denmark and/or solves important societal challenges.
Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD) wants to invest in projects with a significant potential for growth, e.g. arising from the interface between traditionally separated scientific disciplines – or from new and emerging disciplines or business models.
IFD invests in projects anywhere in the innovation value chain, which are in need of resources to overcome specific barriers or risks. This means that IFD invests in the high-quality project only a few steps from successful introduction to a market or from implementation – or in the early strategic research project, where a focused effort and collaboration with the most competent international and Danish partners are essential.
The purpose of IFD ´s investments within the “open call” is to strengthen the most value creating and unusual, preferably disruptive, innovation projects, which span different disciplines of science or lie outside the framework of the theme-specific calls.
The 2017 budget is approximately DKK 130 million
- Any legal entity (such as an enterprise, a research institution or a public institution) in or outside Denmark, directly involved in the project activities, is eligible to apply or participate and receive funding from IFD. For details of the maximum investment rate for the different types of participants.
- One of the project participants must act as the applicant, and the project participants must in addition specify the person who, during the application process, acts as contact person between IFD and the project participants.
