Commercialising R&D results (FORNY2020)

 

Primary objective

The primary objective of the FORNY2020 programme is to increase value creation by ensuring that R&D results from publicly-funded research institutions are brought to the market.

Secondary objectives

  • To generate growth in new and existing companies by selecting and funding projects that are expected to lead to substantial commercial returns or be of some other major benefit to society.
  • To encourage the establishment of professional, efficient and specialised technology transfer offices (TTOs) associated with publicly-funded research institutions.

The programme supports the commercialisation of R&D results generated by researchers and students alike and will promote innovation within all disciplines and business areas as well as in both the public and social sectors. Results may have their origin in publicly-funded research institutions alone or in collaborative projects involving trade and industry.
 

The programme gives priority to the following types of support: proof-of-concept funding; local funding for projects of TTOs; measures to enhance structure and promote network-building and competence-building at TTOs; and student entrepreneur projects (call will be available Spring 2016).
