About SFI Centres

The Centres for Research-based Innovation are to develop expertise in fields of importance for innovation and value creation. Through long-term research conducted in close collaboration between research-performing companies and prominent research groups, the SFI centres are to enhance technology transfer, internationalization and researcher training.

The scientific merit of the research must be of high international caliber. The SFI centres may receive support for a total of eight years (an initial five-year period with the possibility of a three-year extension).
