Calls

Broad calls covering all of Swedish Mining Innovation’s thematic areas are announced on a regular basis. The financed innovation projects should help to strengthen the sustainability and competitiveness of the Swedish mining and metal producing industry, for example through new technological achievements. The projects financed may be pre-studies, fullscale projects or pilot projects.

Project applications are evaluated by an external assessment team. This leaves a recommendation to Swedish Mining Innovation’s board, which, after a thematic review, leaves a decision to Vinnova. After that, Vinnova takes the formal decision on which projects are granted and administrates them.

In addition to broad calls, there are also opportunities for existing projects to apply for planning grants to gear up the whole or part of their Swedish Mining Innovation project.

Leverage call

The strategic innovation programme Swedish Mining Innovation and Vinnova invite all stakeholders who have or have had projects financed by Swedish Mining Innovation to apply for grants for preparing a project application (called planning projects) to leverage their STRIM projects through initiation of the new project (called leverage projects). Leverage projects may be related to entire projects or parts of projects. The planning project grant is aimed at writing applications, building an international consortia and associated activities that lead to additional funding from EU or international programmes for continuing development based on activities and results from projects funded by Swedish Mining Innovation.

The leverage projects are to support the strategic innovation programme’s overall objectives to improve the competitiveness of the mining and metal producing industry, to improve the sustainability of the sector, to improve resource and energy efficiency across the entire sector’s value chain, as well as to develop and introduce new knowledge and new technologies to find new ores.
