Chemistry from bio-based raw material

With this call for proposals, BioInnovation wishes to promote projects which develop processes for the production of bio-based platform chemicals and/or specialty chemicals and their further refinement in a value chain. The projects should be based on an idea that has already been validated in a laboratory or small pilot scale.

  • What is the offer about?

    Many chemical industries today use fossil raw materials, and the chemical industry's production volumes are predicted to increase. At the same time, the share of bio-based raw materials constitutes only a very small part of the total production today.

    The chemical industry is a major supplier of inputs to other product value chains, for example the engineering industry, the construction industry, the pulp and paper industry, the packaging industry, and the textile industry. Changing the chemical industry from fossil to bio-based raw materials is therefore a key to the bio-based transition.

    How to apply

    To apply for funding, you need to log in and complete an application form in our eServices portal. The application form contains questions about your project, the participants taking part in the project and your budget.

    Plesae download the templates for the documents you need to attach to your application such as a CV or project description.

    Please allow enough time

    Please keep in mind that it takes time to complete an application. Filling in the templates can take several days, since they're based on analyses you need to do. Therefore, start the application well in advance. You can start filling in your details, then save and continue at a later time.

    This happens when the call for proposals is closed

    When your proposal has been registered, we email a confirmation to the person responsible for the user account as well as to the project manager and the signatory. This may take a few hours after the call for proposals closes. If you have not received a confirmation within 24 hours after the call for proposals closes, please contact us.

    When the call for proposals is closed, you cannot change or fill in any new information. Then you can only supplement your proposal if we ask for it.

    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
