R&D Funding and collaboration

GreenLab Skive and DTU have joined forces to add a dedicated research layer to the GreenLab Skive platform. The VILLUM FOUNDATION has supported this endeavour with a grant including 10 M DKK for smaller, flexible, mission-driven research projects.

Mini-calls open to all technical universities
This mini call for research projects is open to all Danish technical universities: AAU, AU and SDU. DTU is the primary university partner, main applicant, and grant coordinator. Still, the purpose is to activate more Danish technical research expertise and encourage more collaboration and coordination between universities.

We received 17 applications in the first round, and we are impressed with the quality and engagement from all four technical universities. We are ready for the next round, where the deadline will be on Tuesday, June 14 at 12.00 noon.

Mission-driven research with defined challenges
For this round, we are happy to provide 3 challenges that need to be addressed. The challenges are identified through an ongoing dialogue with our Partners here at GreenLab and with researchers through workshops. We are always open to good ideas, and if you have an idea addressing a challenge that we have not identified, you are more than welcome to contact us and present your idea.

Challenges to be addressed in this call are: 

  1. Challenge 1: Actionable decision tools for curated eco-industrial cluster design based on meta studies of clusters and industrial symbiosis
  2. Challenge 2: Customer segmentation tool through sustainability preferences. Mapping the tradeoff between sustainability and cost in industrial clusters
  3. Challenge 3: Design guide for active power distribution networks in industrial clusters – building the power grid for a national research lab
  4. Challenge X: Open Challenge - Your ideas are welcome

We will present these challenges in-depth in connection to GreenLab Summit on May 20 in Skive. You are more than welcome to participate and go into a dialogue with GreenLab directly. We treasure open innovation, so join us!
