UiB idé – Do you have a good idea? – Seek support!

UiB idé gives employees and students the possibility to apply for economic support for good innovation ideas, which must be developed and tested before they can be further developed.

For an idea to be innovative, it must be novel, create value and respond to specific needs from a certain user group, or from society in general. Good ideas are found in all professional environments, and can become social innovations, public sector innovations, process innovations, commercialization projects or other types of innovation.

With UiB idé, UiB has a program that can support your idea with both advice and funding, to help you to reach your goal.

The maximum funding amount is NOK 500,000 for researcher projects, and NOK 100,000 for student projects. The application deadline is 6 April 2021, and the project must be completed by December 2021. For the pilot year 2021, the total program budget is around NOK 2,000,000.
