If you within your research have formulated a concept for a technological solution and wish to develop it to the stage of achieving proof-of-concept (TRL2–>3), you are in the right phase for Stage 1 of the call, which is open now. (Stage 2, which is for validating the technology in a lab setting (TRL3–>4), will open in the spring of 2024.)
This call supports deep tech-based solutions, which according to VINNOVA includes the areas of materials research, biotechnology research, hardware, electronics or research-intensive algorithms. Examples can be different types of quantum technology, visionary eXtended Reality (XR), general AI (AGI), pseudomorphic hardware, synthetic biology, nanorobotics, visionary photonics, etc. (not excluding things not listed here).
