Apply for funding from Food & Bio Cluster Denmark for knowledge dissemination, matchmaking, internationalisation and collaborative projects

Do you have an idea for an activity in the field of food and bioresources that can promote collaboration on innovation between companies and research and knowledge environments as well as other actors in the ecosystem? Then you can now apply for funding from the Food & Bio Cluster program “INNOVATIONSKRAFT”.

Now is the time, if you are planning or have an idea for an activity that can promote collaboration on innovation between companies and research and knowledge environments as well as other actors in the ecosystem around food and bioresources.

A grant from the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science, as part of the collaboration agreement between Food & Bio Cluster Denmark and Aarhus University, has made it possible to apply for funding for activities that can promote the companies' innovative power.

It is possible to apply for grants for these three types of activities:

·         Dissemination of knowledge, communication and competence development

·         Matchmaking; for example, between companies and knowledge institutions

·         Internationalisation

The support allocated to the knowledge institution may only be used for salaries, and in addition, there is a 50 % co-funding requirement – which is usually covered by the participation hours of the company.

Do you have a suggestion?

Do not hesitate to contact Margrethe Balling Høstgaard, corporate and international coordinator at DCA.

·         Suggestions for activities to be held in 2021: Deadline September 10, 2021

·         Suggestions for activities to be held in 2022: Deadline September 25, 2021

Please briefly describe the activity, the expected time of the activity and the desired amount. An amount of between DKK 20,000 and 40,000 is proposed.

Collaboration projects

In addition to this, it is currently possible to apply for funding for collaboration projects as part of the INNOVATIONSKRAFT program.

You can apply for DKK 300-500,000 per project, and minimum two companies must be included.

Please note that there are two different calls, one for knowledge-based projects, and one for company-oriented projects.
