R&D in the industry



R&D activities in the industrial sector have grown steadily during the past 40 years. The service industries have contributed most to this growth.

The Research Council provides support to private and public institutions seeking to develop new knowledge and new products, processes and services. The Research Council’s services are available to all companies that are already involved in or wish to conduct research activities. Support is provided via specific research programmes or general support schemes. Read about funding opportunities
