Commercialising R&D results
The FORNY programme provides funding for the development of business ideas based on R&D results from universities and university colleges. The aim is to start new companies or develop new technology that can be used by existing industry.
The FORNY programme promotes commercialisation of ideas based on R&D results from universities and university colleges. The FORNY programme awards funding at an early stage in the commercialisation process, long before seed funds or venture capital companies take the chance of investing money.
The FORNY programme facilitates the commercialisation of ideas generated by researchers at publicly-funded institutions across Norway through a nationwide network of players.
The FORNY programme is administered jointly by the Research Council and Innovation Norway.
