Real steps towards a circular and bio-based economy
Vinnova offers funding to research organizations, companies, public and non-profit organizations that have identified a concrete case, such as a value chain, a flow or a thematic area where there are good opportunities to take real steps towards developing solutions that are circular.
In order for industry and society to change, new thinking and development are required on several fronts. Changing from linear to circular and breaking the connections between economic growth and environmental degradation requires new solutions and innovations. Circular flows that retain value added in products and its components are deemed to have particular potential to contribute with economic and environmental benefits.
This efforts (sometimes also initiatives) is divided into two stages. This offer is the first stage and pertains to the feasibility study (also preliminary study). Granted feasibility study (also preliminary study) will be invited to submit a proposal to stage 2 in the spring of 2019.
