The call in detail

The green sector is important to the Skaraborg region. The entire sector is in need of big changes and development, not least in the sustainability area. Innovation and entrepreneurship will be key in working through these changes.

There are many skilled scientists at SLU who, in cooperation with their project partners, can act as driving forces towards higher levels of sustainability through innovation on different levels.

We therefore welcome project applications that in the future could develop into a commercial product, service, process or social innovation. The nature of these ideas could take many shapes and forms, and all are welcome, disregarding whether they are products, services, methods or something else as of today not yet recognized.


Applications for the Innovation Award will be handled confidentially, and the innovation will remain in the ownership of the applicant after the competition.
