Preannouncement - Ninth Swiss-Swedish Call for R&D Project Outlines

The ninth Swiss-Swedish Innovation Initiative (SWII) Call for R&D Project Outlines will be launched on February 2019, in conjunction with the Swiss Nordic Bio and the SWII Digitalisation Networking Conference including subjects of AI, Big Data & AR/VR. Deadline for submission will be 29 November 2019. Consortia participating in the upcoming call should integrate partners from both Switzerland and Sweden. Consortium partners are invited to discuss project ideas with the respective EUREKA Eurostars office before submission.

Previous SWII calls have had a good impact providing finance to, in total, 39 bilateral projects with an aggregated project value of some 48 million Euros. The successful cooperation within SWII has helped to build consortia and provided a platform for an interchange of experience in different fields.

The aim of the SWII calls is to provide applicants:

  • Partnering opportunities
  • Recommendations on suitable EUREKA funding mechanisms
  • Guidance on how to prepare a high quality proposal

Focus
The ninth bilateral call is open to all topics of the Swiss-Swedish Innovation Initiative (SWII), but focuses on Digitalisation.
