Upscaling for a sustainable industry 2023

This is a call for proposals within Vinnova´s priority area Sustainable Industry. In Sweden, several initiatives are is running aimed at developing a sustainable industry. Many of these initiatives are in relatively early stages of development, but can, with the right conditions, grow into pilot and demonstration projects that can eventually be translated into industrial solutions. Upscaling and testing of concepts in a real environment is considered a prerequisite for minimizing risks, creating a basis for acceptance and promoting the commercialization of solutions that contribute to sustainability and climate change. This call therefore calls for project proposals for further development and upscaling of solutions that, after implementation, contribute to a climate-neutral and/or sustainable industry. The overall purpose is to - through support for testing and demonstration in a real environment - promote industrial implementation.
