Examples of funding schemes:
Innovation Norway has in the context of the corona crisis substantially increased their financing framework by almost 60%, with NOK 4,5 billion. 15th April they launched two new programs for start-ups, in addition to a extraordinary innovation grant for small and medium-sized businesses with a NOK 2,1 billion framework.
Design-driven Innovation program
The Design-driven Innovation Program (DIP) funds projects that will use design methodology to explore the possibilities in the early idea and concept phase of an innovation project. The designers at Inventas can contribute to both application writing and project execution.
The funds are managed by DOGA - Design and Architecture Norway. The application deadline is 1st June.
The SkatteFUNN scheme gives tax deductions for the use of external development expertise which Inventas can provide.
SkatteFUNN has introduced three weeks of processing time until the summer. Applications are processed on an ongoing basis, but 1st September is the deadline for projects started this year.
Other sources of funding
Through our cooperation with TTO's, incubators and industry clusters there are several programs for supporting innovation projects. One example is our "Health Sprint" that are offered start-ups through Aleap and Norwegian Health Consortium.
