The European Union and its member states are major humanitarian donors. The EU have launched a challenge called “Affordable High-Tech for Humanitarian Aid” where companies and/or organizations are invited to develop innovative solutions for the delivery of humanitarian aid. Join this seminar to learn more about the challenge, and the EU's SMB instrument. 

The innovation challenge can be a great opportunity to get funding, as the winning prize is €5 million allocated in five awards of €1 million, each in a different area such as shelter, water, sanitation, energy, heating, cooling, food, hygiene and medical care. Companies and humanitarian organizations can apply. Read more about the challenge here.


The seminar will start with an information session about the innovation challenge. This part is relevant for companies and humanitarian organizations. The latter part of the seminar will be relevant for companies interested in learning about the EU instrument for SMBs (which is part of the H2020 Research & Innovation Framework). There will be time for Q&As and "speed-dates" with our EU advisors.

The seminar will be at Innovation Norway HQs in Akersgata 13, on Thursday May 31st. Please register below to attend the seminar.
