- A more cost-effective, qualitative and sustainable welfare
- Increased innovative capacity, growth and global competitiveness
We particularly encourage innovation projects in these areas:

Projects in other areas of need can also be granted.
We encourage applicants from public actors in collaboration with companies, civil society, academia, institutes and innovation players. For a preparatory project, one public actor is required, but we encourage collaboration with companies.
