Do you have an Idea?

APPLY FOR GRANTS!

NTNU Discovery supports good ideas from employees and students at  NTNU/Helse Midt-Norge. We provide financial support early in the process, when no one else is willing to step in. That is why our contribution is important. With our support you have the opportunity to develop, confirm and  assure the quality of your idea before you move forward.

The support scheme will probably also help increase the quality of your idea and give it a good push forward on the development path towards a product and / or company.

We also know that if you have received support from NTNU Discovery, the chances  for that others will raise money for you increase.
