“NTN – Innovation booster” call for tender: Funding period 2021 – 2024

The NTN – innovation boosters are intended to give SMEs a competitive edge through cooperation with partners along the value chain and by incorporating the knowledge, skills and technologies of the universities. In addition to incremental innovations, more radical innovation ideas are also to be promoted. Innosuisse therefore calls on interested partners to jointly apply as a consortium to implement a specific thematic innovation booster initiative. The first deadline to submit a proposal is set to February 28th, 2020.

The call for tender

Innosuisse calls on interested partners to apply for the implementation of a four-year «NTN – Innovation Booster». The annual financial support of an «NTN – Innovation Booster» can amount to as much as CHF 500,000. Eight to ten thematically different «NTN – Innovation Boosters» are expected to be supported in the 2021-2024 funding period.

The support provided by Innosuisse is based on the possibility of making contributions to National Thematic Networks (the term for the network activities funded to date) as described in Art. 31–33 of the Innosuisse Funding Ordinance of 20 September 2017 (420.231) and the Implementing Provisions for Networks and Specialist Events of 16 November 2017.
