Important dates

During the information meetings, we tell you more about the call for proposals, and there is an opportunity to ask questions. We also have the option of having additional information meetings for a grouping of actors if needed.

  • The call in detail

    • This call for proposals is aimed at groups of actors with a common vision and strategic idea for building an excellent research environment. The offer refers to research areas that have great applicability within Vinnova's areas Sustainable industry or Digital transformation and where the participating the actors can demonstrate that the knowledge developed in the environment can be widely used in business and society.

      This is how Vinnova is changing for a sustainable future

      The coordinator must be a university, a university college or a research institute applying together with companies and/or public organisations. We see positively that other universities and research institutes are active project partners in the competence centre.

      Swedish industry has the potential to take a leading role in the transition to a more sustainable society, both within and outside the country's borders. Therefore, funded competence centers are expected to actively work with international collaboration, for example within the European research and innovation programs and other global collaborations related to Sustainable industry or Digital transformation.

      Vinnova plans to approve a maximum of nine competence centers, five in the area ofSustainable industryand four in the area ofDigital transformation.

      A competence center is financed to one-third by Vinnova, one-third (or more) by university/ university college/institute and one-third (or more) by business/public sector. Only universities/ university college/institutes can be recipients of funding from Vinnova.


      The program offers the possibility of funding for up to 10 years. After a first stage of 5 years, an independent evaluation is made and Vinnova can offer a second financing stage of up to 5 years, based on the results of the evaluation and Vinnova's current priorities. Vinnova expects an increased share of funding from industry during the second funding stage.

      Vinnova's funding for a competence center amounts to a maximum of SEK 4 million in the first year and a maximum of SEK 8 million per year during the following 4 years of the first stage. In a second funding phase, Vinnova's funding amounts to a maximum of SEK 8 million per year during the first 4 years and a maximum of SEK 4 million in the last year.

    • World-class Research and innovation are needed to develop knowledge and skills that contribute to sustainable development and Swedish competitiveness.

      The Swedish industry has shown the potential to lead the transition to a more sustainable and climate-neutral industry both within and outside the country's borders and at the same time has been able to be globally competitive. Individual companies or companies in close cooperation, especially those that cover large parts of the value chains, have the opportunity through a cohesive approach to make the necessary changes for continued Swedish global competitiveness.

      There are several internationally visible industrial ventures in Sweden where former competence centers have played an important role for access to competence and relevant research results.

      With the financing, we want to contribute to Vinnova's areas Sustainable industry and Digital transformation by, in this effort:

      • contribute to Sweden being globally competitive when it comes to developing knowledge, skills and abilities for a sustainable transition.
      • contribute to Sweden being an active nation in the application of enabling key technologies for sustainable transition.

      Vinnova is tasked with promoting sustainable growth by improving the conditions for innovation. Improved conditions for innovation strengthen the capacity to reach the goals for sustainable development in Agenda 2030. Through our efforts, we contribute to the global commitment to reach the goals.

      Our work to contribute to the goals of Agenda 2030

      Sweden has a good starting point and also has the ambition to take a leading role in the work to reach the global sustainability goals. Internationally competitive research and innovation environments have the opportunity to contribute to achieving the global goals and reach a sustainable future.

      Cooperation, pooling of forces and innovation will be decisive for reaching the goals in Agenda 2030. With this call for proposals, we want to get more people to develop their innovative capacity in collaboration and create new solutions that contribute to the goals, within the framework of the priorities of the call.

      One part of this is investments in competence centers where we want to stimulate business, the public sector and academia (universities, university college and research institutes) to jointly conduct excellent research- and innovation activities within a selected research area. The program takes its starting point from similar investments at Vinnova, e.g. The competence center program (between the years 1995-2007) and VINN Excellence Centerprogrammet (started in 2004).

      Vinnova wishes to see competence centers in strong collaboration with surrounding academic environments and relevant industries. The expectation is that the working methods, knowledge, skills and experiences generated will benefit more than the centre's project partners. Each competence center must have clear models and plans for how to best achieve this.

      Gender equality is a prerequisite for sustainable growth. It constitutes one of the sustainability goals in Agenda 2030, but it is also a perspective that should permeate the work with all objective. The call for proposals must therefore contribute to equal societal development linked to women and men taking part in the contribution and participating in and having influence over the competence center in an equal way.

      Results from research and innovation that are made freely available give more people the opportunity to contribute to solutions to societal challenges. A competence center should contribute to making more results freely available to everyone and scientific publication should be done with open access.

    • A competence center that is granted must conduct needs-motivated excellent research through active collaboration between all the centre's project parties. The project parties in a competence center are expected, in addition to cooperating within the center, to also cooperate with the surrounding relevant environment both nationally and internationally. The activities conducted within a center must result in new or strengthened networks as well as access to new knowledge and skills that meet the needs of business and the rest of society.

      A competence center needs to have a clear picture of how it is positioned in relation to existing investments, for example in the form of strategic research areas and innovation areas, existing center investments and research financed via faculty funds. The competence center must be able to show how the activity complements or reinforces previous and ongoing investments.

      Furthermore, the competence center must demonstrate the potential to create or strengthen lasting structures and networks to spread knowledge and experience outside the center's organization. This is, for example, through training for both students and researchers as well as skills development for professionals or personnel mobility between organizations in the area.

      A competence center can be offered funding for up to 10 years. An approved competence center will receive support for 5 years in a first stage. After evaluation, Vinnova can offer a second funding stage of up to 5 years, based on the results of the evaluation and Vinnova's then current priorities. Vinnova expects an increased share of funding from industry during the second funding stage.

      Competence centers that are not offered funding in a second stage will be granted up to SEK 4 million as a lump sum for winding down the activities financed by Vinnova.

      Internationalization

      Internationalization means, among other things, gaining access to important knowledge and innovation environments in the world as well as to knowledge, talent and technology, as well as collaboration with relevant partners within the center's research area.

      For competence centres, this means, among other things, continuously doing external analyzes to identify strategically interesting international research- and development environments to collaborate with in order to cover needs for relevant competences and networks.

      The competence centers that are granted must be internationally prominent in their research area and have an action plan to increase international attraction and competition.

      Against the background of the above, Vinnova views positively that a competence center consists of both Swedish and international parties. Funding from international companies can be included in the industry's share of the budget. However, only parties with a branch or place of business in Sweden can receive any part of Vinnova's support.

      Small and medium-sized companies in a competence center

      Vinnova considers it advantageous that a competence center includes both large and small companies and therefore encourages knowledge-intensive small and medium-sized companies to participate in this effort.

      Leadership

      Experience from previous competence center initiatives shows that a well-functioning competence center requires active leadership, both via the center leader and the center board, and an active collaboration between relevant parties in business, academia and public activities. The management of a center must demonstrate that they have the ability to create a culture to get individuals and teams to function and deliver, as well as to develop and grow.

      Gender equality

      Vinnova and all higher education institutions have an equality integration mission with the aim of contributing to achieving the gender equality policy goal that women and men should have the same power to shape society and their own lives. In addition, research shows that equal innovation and research is not only a matter of rights and democracy, but can also mean added value in the form of competence, quality and relevance of results, strengthened innovative capacity and new business opportunities.

      Gender equality is a prerequisite for sustainable growth and is found in Agenda 2030 as an objective in itself, but also as a perspective that should permeate the work with all objective. The call for proposals should therefore contribute to an equal social development linked to two main perspectives:

      • One perspective is about both women and men taking part in the contribution and participating in and having influence over the project in an equal way.
      • The second perspective is about the project analyzing and deciding whether there are equality aspects (sex or gender) that are relevant within the solution's problem area and usefulness.

      Equal innovation for those looking for funding

      The Central Board must have a balanced gender distribution, i.e. of the board's members, at least 40 percent must be women and at least 40 percent men.

    • In this call for proposals, Vinnova strives to create strong international research environments that can strengthen research areas applicable within Vinnova's areas Sustainable industry or Digital transformation.

      The results from competence centers in the area ofSustainable industry are expected to contribute to enabling knowledge and/or technology within one or more of Sustainable Industry's four focus areas, i.e. Climate neutral and circular production, Resource efficient and resilient value chains, Global competitiveness and A socially sustainable industry.

      Sustainable industry Vinnova

      The results from competence centers in the area Digital transformation are expected to contribute to enabling knowledge and/or technology for sustainable digital transformation. Priority is given in the areas of robust and secure infrastructure, data as a strategic resource, federated machine learning, advanced mathematical methods, future advanced communication systems such as 6G and processes and methods for the development of semiconductor components.

      System design of semiconductors is not included in this call for proposals, the area is supported by SSF's effort Semiconductor System Design (SeSyDe).

      Digital transformation | Vinnova

      Competence centers granted in this call for proposals are expected to complement existing competence centers within Vinnova.

      Results- and impact goals

      Vinnova has set up results- and impact goals that are expected to arise in the 1-5 year term and be fulfilled by the center at the 5-year evaluation. The short-term impact goals are expected to occur in 5–10 years and the long-term impact goals in more than 10 years. These are described below in more detail.

      Performance targets (in the short term) are:

      • That the competence center has scientific excellence of a high international standard through publications and patents
      • That the competence center conducts needs-driven research in active collaboration with relevant parties
      • That the competence center applies innovative ways of leading and organizing cooperation within the center and the surrounding environment
      • That knowledge-intensive SMEs actively participate in the competence center, by being involved in the research projects conducted in the center
      • That the parties have trust in each other, which can/should be expressed in a continuous flow of knowledge between the parties and access to strategic contacts with the parties
      • An increased national and international exchange of both knowledge and people, both between academia/academy and between industry/academy (in both directions)

      Impact goals in the shorter term (after 5 years) for the program are:

      • That the competence center has a continuous surveillance of the surrounding world and gets increased access to strategic contacts through expanded networks
      • That the knowledge-intensive SMEs that participate have a better competitive ability
      • Access to individuals with strategic competence, i.e. skills that meet the needs of companies and the rest of society
      • That there are relevant courses at universities and university college through an interaction between education, research and innovation, so that the content of the courses takes into account the needs of business and the rest of society

      The long-term impact goals (after 10 years or more) of the program are:

      • That excellent research is utilized in business and society
      • That the competence center activities complement and add value to existing investments in the innovation system
      • That need-motivated sustainable innovations have been developed that stand up in an international perspective
      • Att FoU-investeringar is attracted to and can be retained in Sweden through the competence center's activities
      • That there is access to skills that meet the needs of companies and the rest of society

      Evaluation and follow-up

      The competence centers that are granted funds within the program will be followed up annually by Vinnova via annual reporting. In addition, a follow-up will be done during year 2 and an independent evaluation with international evaluator after 5 years.

      The annual follow-up will take place by each center manager submitting a report on the competence center activities and answering an overall survey linked to it. In addition, all parties participating in the center must answer a small questionnaire sent to them. The questionnaires will be compiled and form part of the basis for the independent evaluation that takes place after 5 years.

      The follow-up during the center's second year of operation will focus on how the organization and associated processes work within the competence center. It is done to identify if there is a need for changes or support measures for the organization to function optimally.

      The evaluation after 5 years is done by specially appointed international evaluator from relevant areas and industries against specified assessment criteria. The evaluators are appointed by Vinnova and work under confidentiality and confidentiality and base their assessment on a compilation of the indicators used in the questionnaires for the annual report, a self-evaluation from the center and interviews with the center's representatives. Vinnova has the option of offering a second financing period in 5 years, based on the results of the evaluation and Vinnova's then current priorities. Vinnova expects an increased share of funding from industry during the second funding period in 5 years.

    • The call for proposals is aimed at groups of actors with a common vision and strategic idea for building a research environment based on excellent research. The offer refers to research areas that have great applicability within Vinnova's areas Sustainable industry or Digital transformation and where the the actors involved can demonstrate that the knowledge developed in the environment can be utilized by business and society.

      Coordinator must be a university, a university college or a research institute and they apply together with companies and/or public activities. We look positively on interdisciplinary approaches and that other universities and institutes are partners in the competence centre.

      It is of great importance that the coordinating project party (coordinator) can demonstrate that the proposal is in line with the overall strategy of the university, college or research institute.

      International project partners are welcome to participate in a competence center but cannot be coordinating participant. Foreign organizations must have a branch or place of business in Sweden in order to receive funding from Vinnova.

    Who can read your proposal?

    Applications submitted to us become public documents. But we do not disclose information about the business, inventions or research results if it can be assumed that someone will suffer financial damage if the information is shown.

    This means that we must hand over the documents if someone requests them. But we keep confidential the information that we judge could mean financial damage if it is disclosed.

    This is how we handle public documents and confidentiality
