Demonstration Projects

Demonstration Projects aim to make new and innovative technology available to the partner countries. Projects also aim to increase knowledge and know-how by demonstrating and adapting new and sustainable, pro-poor technology.

Who can apply?

Small and medium sized enterprises are encouraged to apply in particular. All types of organisations are welcome to apply, including for-profit and not-for-profit organisations, foundations and academic institutions.

One partner must act as the principal partner (the applicant) when submitting your application. The principal partner must play a key role in the project implementation.

The funds are paid to the applicant (the buyer of the imported technology). The applicant must be based and legally registered in one of the 11 selected countries, and have identified a seller of the technology required for the project (outside of the selected country). The buyer and seller must have signed a partnership agreement before submitting the application.

Criteria for applicants

Each partner must have been operating for at least three years. As a guiding principle, we are looking for organisations that have at least five and no more than 249 employees if the partner is a private enterprise. Each partner must be financially sound with a reasonable turnover, and no record of recent payment defaults.

What can you apply for?

Projects demonstrating technology that is new to either the country or context for the project, but has been tested and sold in another country, can be awarded a grant for a Demonstration Project ranging from SEK 500,000 to 1,800,000.

Grants for Demonstration Project may include components such as:

  • equipment purchases
  • capacity building
  • services required to get the technology up and running
  • activities to communicate the project results and information about the technology used

The costs of the technology/equipment should account for a substantial proportion of the total project cost.

Tillvaxtverket can fund up to 50 percent of your invoiced equipment costs and up to 80 percent of your invoiced costs for services. The remaining 50 percent and 20 percent, respectively, must come from co-financing from the applicant or other private or public sources such as an international organisation or a public institution.

How will it be paid?

Tillväxtverket pays the approved costs retrospectively and the Grant Recipient must show that its share has already been paid. The Grant will be disbursed as follows:

  • 20 percent of the approved grant after the technology has been ordered from the partner
  • 60 percent of the approved grant when the technology is in use and an onsite monitoring inspection has been conducted
  • 20 percent of the approved grant after marketing and communication activities have been carried out in accordance with the agreed project plan
