Current calls within SIO Grafen
Collaboration for commercial applications with graphene – autumn 2018
In this call, we want to finance industrial demand-driven projects of different degrees of maturity. Project proposals should be based on a need within at least one of the companies in the partner group, and the projects should be conducted in collaboration between companies, institutes, universities and colleges. The solution proposal on which the project is based on must clearly show how graphene, or any other two-dimensional material, can add improved material properties or functions and become a part of a product that belongs to any of the companies in the partner group.
• Feasibility study, small and large Research and Innovation projects can be sought within all the areas of strength within the Innovation Program: Electronics, Coatings, Composites, Energy, Manufacturing and Biotechnology.
• Demonstrator Projects can only be applied within four strength areas: Coatings, Electronics, Energy and Biotechnology.

Characterisation checks – Analysis of graphene materials free of charge
Companies that need to characterize and quality-proof graphene materials can apply for a characterization check of up to SEK 60,000 to fund a material analysis from authorized companies that perform analyses. No co-financing is required. The analysis results will become open data and be published in the SIO Grafen material database. We have compiled a list of graphene properties and how these can be measured. Under the ”Actors” tab, we have listed authorized suppliers who can analyze the graphene. Characterization Guide >>
New analyse companies are welcome to register. See more information here on page 3 >>
Closing date: 31 December, 2018
