The Call is open for all SWII topics, but focuses on the development of products and services within life sciences and smart products for automated transportation. The following subtopics have been identified:
Smart products for automated transportation:
The call is managed by the EUREKA offices at the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems (Vinnova) and the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) in line with the EUREKA initiative.
Submission and the approval procedures
In the first phase:
The outlines will be screened by SERI and VINNOVA and the partners will be notified of the results within the shortest possible delay after the submission (about 2-3 weeks).
In the second phase:
Funding support to successful project proposals of Phase 2 will be given to each partner by its own funding organization (VINNOVA in Sweden and SERI and the Commission for Technology and Innovation CTI in Switzerland) in accordance with the national laws, rules, regulations and procedures in effect. Concrete funding mechanisms depend on the most suitable EUREKA funding (Network/Eurostars/Clusters) that will be decided on in Phase 2 of the submission process.
