The seventh Switzerland-Sweden Call for R&D Project Outlines

The fifth bilateral Call for R&D Project Outlines.

The next Swiss-Swedish Call for R&D Project Outlines is planned to be launched in September 2017, at SWII-Additive Manufacturing in Stockholm. Deadline will be towards the end of the year.
Previous SWII Calls have had a good impact providing finance to a total of 30 bilateral projects with an aggregated project value of some 38 million Euros. The outcome of the first SWII Call was a tenfold increase in Swiss-Swedish bilateral R&D projects with EUREKA and Eurostars financing. This brought Switzerland and Sweden to become the two countries within the EUREKA network with the highest number of bilateral projects.

The EUREKA framework is the leading European platform for industry-led, applied, close-to-market research (

The aim of the SWII calls is to facilitate:

  • Funding of market oriented Swiss-Swedish R&D projects
  • Creation of research consortia consisting of Swiss-Swedish small and medium-sized enterprises, large industry, academia and research institutes
The seventh bilateral Call will be open to all topics of the Swiss-Swedish Innovation Initiative (SWII), but focused on the development of innovative products and services within the life sciences as well as within smart factory.
More specifically:
  • Metal powder development for additive manufacturing
    • Powder manufacturing alloys
    • materials characterization
    • standardization
  • Pre-process, process and post process development
    • Design and tooling,
    • Tailored microstructures
    • Process/quality control
    • Post processing
  • Geometry and design optimization
    • Density,structure and surface texture
    • design methods including rules, standards, software support, sustainable design
    • software design for integration into current production lines

Detailed Information & Form for Submitting Project Outline 
Detailed information about the seventh bilateral Call wil be available on this page, after the Call has been launched. Project outline within the framework of the Call can then be submitted using the following form EUREKA Project Outline.

Calls are managed by the EUREKA offices at the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems (VINNOVA) and the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) in line with the EUREKA initiative (
