Basic eligibility criteria
For a project to receive funding under this call for proposals, these basic eligibility criteria must be met:
- The project must include partners from at least three Nordic countries with a reasonable balance between the different nations.
- Nordic Built can only fund projects submitted by organisations (private or public) that are based and operate in one or more of the Nordic countries.
- No more than 50% of the budget can come from public funding (Nordic Innovation funds counts as public funding).
- The duration of the project must be no longer than 36 (thirty-six) months.
- The project must lead to a concrete innovative result (new concept, process, product or service) that should be communicated and shared on a Nordic and international level.
- The funding from Nordic Innovation should have a clear incentive effect on the project, and can only be granted given that the project participants are risking own input in order to gain a greater benefit. National co-funding in the projects must be dependent on Nordic Innovation funding.
- The project partners that will receive funding in the project must be prepared to beeligible for de minimis state aid under European Commission Regulation (EC) NO 1407/2013 (See the section on State aid below). This criteria only applies to entities that engage in “economic activity” and therefore are subject to the European state aid rules.
