  • What do we want to achieve with funding one?

    The objective of initiatives in the strategic innovation area Metallic materials is to create conditions for international competitiveness and sustainable solutions to global societal challenges.

    The non-thematic call for proposals is planned to be repeated annually in the strategic innovation programme Metallic materials. The purpose is to provide an opportunity to apply for funding of project proposals with the potential to contribute to performance targets and effect goals of the strategic innovations programme but addressing other topics than those covered by the programme’s most recent call(s). The annual recurrence of the non-thematic call for proposals should also give companies, researchers and other stakeholders a good opportunity to plan projects and produce well-prepared applications.
