Cybersecurity for advanced industrial digitalisation

Vinnova opens a call for proposals to develop new cybersecurity solutions linked to the implementation of advanced digitization in the industry. The purpose is to prepare the industry for the cybersecurity challenges that arise when new technologies and working methods are introduced in the business. The digital structural transformation leads, among other things, to an increased dependence between organizations / systems, an increased flexibility in the development of software systems and a higher degree of autonomous processes. In this call we offer support for the development of technologies, processes and other aspects that are important for industrial cybersecurity.

The offer in brief

What can you apply for?

The projects will develop solutions for the new cyber security challenges that arise when the industry implements advanced digitization, e.g. very high data rate, system of systems, software defined functions and broad implementation of AI algorithms. Knowledge of how these challenges can be addressed should be included in a final report that can be disseminated openly to Swedish industry.

Who can apply?

The call is aimed at both individual actors and broad actor constellations. The projects must be driven by industrial needs and must include at least one participant with a clear connection to the industry. Applicants can be from business, academia, institutes, public sector or government agencies.

How much can you apply for?

The call´s preliminary budget has been increased to SEK 75 million to meet the large demand for funding. It is possible to apply for SEK 1-10 million per project. Maximum aid intensity per participant is 50-100% of the eligible costs depending on the type of organization.

Important dates

In this call we assess incoming applications on a number of occasions.That's why we've divided this call into several application periods. This means that if you submit your application before the last day of one of these application periods, you can have it assessed close to that date. But you can submit your application at any time until the very last application date. In the timeline you can see the next application period.
