A progress report must be included in the applications of the ongoing projects.
The grants are for salary, travel and other research expenses and include the mandatory social security costs and the overall expenses of the research organisation to a maximum of 15 %. The research organisation pays the salary, and their agreement must be included in the application.
Priorities for grant applications for 2019 are innovations that promote responsible, commercially sound and efficient uses of natural resources throughout production, utilization and consumption

- Mineral economics
- New ways of energy production and storage
Innovations can be processes, technologies, products, services or social innovations. Innovations must, however, have the potential for economic utilization. The objectives are to create the conditions for the renewal and competitiveness of industry and to respond to global sustainable development challenges such as climate change adaptation or shortage of clean water.
