As a rule, the value of the involvement of the business sector – in the form of competence, equipment and so on – must be at least equivalent to the amount contributed by the Knowledge Foundation (excluding overheads). Some of our programmes does not require co-funding from the business sector. However, these programmes require engagement from business sector partners that is clear and sufficiently comprehensive to ensure benefits to the business partners from the project. The criteria for the respective programme can be found in the calls for proposals.
