Project Plogen offers funding to researchers

Department of Research and Innovation at the University of Stavanger and Prekubator TTO currently have 1MNOK available to support researchers with new ideas. The first call for applications is currently open to UiS employees.

The University of Stavanger and Prekubator TTO are looking to stimulate innovation in the region. Project Plogen is a regional project for developing new research based products and processes.

The Board at the University of Stavanger has decided to earmark 1MNOK towards Project Plogen to support the generation of new innovative ideas. Each application for funding is limited to 50.000 NOK.   

The funds may be used to allow the researcher time to develop the idea and for cost recovery for the following:

• Idea documentation and development
• Initial novelty and patent search
• Initial feasibility study
• Initial Industry screening

The first round of Project Plogen is limited to UiS employees, but as further funding becomes available the subsequent rounds will be opened up to others as well. We invite those interested to submit a short application to Prekubator TTO for assessment, within the 10th of March, 2014.

The template for the application should be marked as “Project Plogen 2014” in the subject line and sent to
