  • What is the call about?

    We are looking for projects that want to develop bio-based materials or material systems designed for circular flows. The materials or system should perform as well or better than existing products. Material systems consisting of bio-based components and other materials are also relevant.

    The materials and material systems must be designed for circular flows. This means that the components should be possible to reuse or recycle as raw material.

    What projects could apply?

    Possible application areas for projects are packaging, construction and vehicles, but other areas are not excluded. Sustainability assessments, for example through life cycle analysis, should be included in all projects. Developing new business models can be included if this is required for continued commercialisation.

    How to apply

    To apply for funding, you need to complete an application form in our application portal, Intressentportalen. The form contains questions about your project, project members and budget.

    Allow enough time to complete the application

    Please keep in mind that it takes time to make an application. Filling in all the templates can take several days, since they are based on analyzes you need to do. Therefore, start the application well in advance. You can start filling in data, save and continue at a later time.
