What we support

Nordic Innovation provides support for projects and programs to stimulate innovation and works to improve framework conditions for Nordic markets and exports. You may apply for funding through instruments such as calls for proposals or tenders as we offer them. Nordic Innovation funding opportunities are linked to our various programs. Nordic Innovation prioritizes activities that contribute to the following criteria.

Nordic added value and additionality

Nordic Innovation’s activities are to promote cooperation between stakeholders in multiple Nordic countries.

Cooperation across national borders creates new synergies and leads to greater benefits than each country can obtain individually.

Nordic Innovation seeks activities which encourage results that would not otherwise be possible.

Small and medium-sized companies

Nordic Innovation’s activities are specially targeted towards SMBs.

External co-funding

Funding activities by Nordic Innovation are required to have external co-funding as well. Co-funding may come from the participating companies, from clusters or from national organizations.

Wider understanding of Nordic impacts

Nordic Innovation gives priority to activities that promote a wider understanding of the positive impacts of Nordic cooperation.

Self-financing after project period

All activities are to be self-financed after the project period has been completed.
