Applying for research funding

You are here

For many types of research funding, for instance Horizon2020, it is very important to clearly describe how the research project will generate benefits in the community, already in the application. A solid utilisation plan increases significantly the chances to receive financing, as this is considered highly important and is a prerequisite in order to compete with other applications.

The Innovation office works closely with other units at Chalmers to provide support for applications (see Chalmers Grants Office)

Amongst other things, we can assist you with:

  • Interpretation of calls relating to sections on utilisation and innovation - to help you identify what the financier deems to be of great importance
  • Contribute to the writing of the work packages linked to the utilisation and innovation- be part of the project organization, plan and budget to carry out operations connected to utilisation and innovation
  • Support the development of collaboration agreements (as a complement to the legal audit) to ensure that collaboration works and that further research is made possible
  • Facilitate the development of processes for managing IP and knowledge assets
  • Support the utilisation of knowledge assets including through research-verification / proof-of-concept

News! Application Makeover
Did your application receive high ratings on research excellence but no financing? Do you still believe in your research idea?
We can help you re-make your application in order to make it more competitive. Together, we review the application and go through aspects such as:

  • Consortium – can new partners from academia and/or industry be added or described differently?
  • Strategic relevance – can your research be related to other developments in Sweden or internationally?
  • Interdisciplinary – can your research idea be complemented with other research to make it more relevant to new research financiers
  • Utilisation – how can relevant target groups be involved to ensure impact?
