All GCE Ocean Technology partners and members can apply for pre-project funding to establish externally funded research, development and innovation (RDI) projects.

To receive financial support from GCE Ocean Technology, your project must have minimum two partners where at least one is an industrial company and at least one is a partner or member of the cluster.

Deadline 9 August

You can apply for up to 250.000,- NOK, and the project should be finalised within the end of 2019. The application deadline is Friday 9 August at 12:00. We aim to give feedback to applicants regarding the evaluation within 20 August.

We utilise Innovation Norway's template "Innovasjonsrammen" for all pre-project funding applications. Please note that you save the application and send it in PDF format to post@gceocean.no. Do not press submit, as this will forward your application to Innovation Norway.

For more information about the application process, template, evaluation criteria and process, please visit our project funding web pages.
