Dit projekt
Hvad skal pengene bruges til?

I projektet kan bl.a. indgå følgende aktiviteter:

  • Afdækning af potentielle anvendelsesmuligheder.
     
  • Styrkelse af opfindelsens kommercielle potentiale eller samfundsmæssige perspektiver.
     
  • Reducering af specifikke risiko-elementer.
     
  • Test af prototyper.
     
  • Udarbejdelse af business case.
     
  • Etablering af teams og partnerskaber til videre forretningsudvikling.

Investeringen dækker udgifter til de ansattes løn, projektrelaterede omkostninger samt øvrige udgifter til fx konsulentydelser.

Investeringen udbetales til den institution, hvor du er ansat, og det er derfor en forudsætning for at ansøge, at institutionen er inddraget i ansøgningsprocessen og vurderer, at projektet og den viden eller de resultater, der arbejdes med, har en høj kvalitet og et stort potentiale.

Vær i den forbindelse opmærksom på at din institution kan have interne deadlines og procedurer.

Hvilke krav stiller vi til projektet?

Vi vurderer dit projekt efter følgende kriterier.

  • Kvalitet af forskning, udvikling og innovation
    Innovation, udvikling og forskning af høj kvalitet.
     
  • Forretningspotentiale og værdiskabelse
    Ideen vil på sigt resultere i et kommercielt produkt eller komme samfundet til gavn på anden vis.
     
  • Økonomisk effektivitet
    Investeringen i projektet står mål med det forventede potentiale og projektets risici.
     
  • Implementering
    Teamet indeholder de rette kompetencer til succesfuld gennemførsel af projektet, og at der er en klar plan for at få omsat ideen til praksis.
