The Synergien.NRW project team offers all innovation stakeholders from the three innovation fields “Health”, “Food” and “Energy” individual support in their innovation endeavours. This support aims to answer specific questions from both experienced and less experienced institutions in North Rhine-Westphalia on how to identify and use synergies. This generally leads to the strategic use of a number of funding programmes along the innovation path. If you are interested, please feel free to use the contact details in the information boxes on the right.
Full and short concepts
Full and short concepts are the core products of the Synergy Kit. They are geared to both applicants and multipliers.
The concepts illustrate a tried-and-tested, methodical approach for systematically identifying synergy potential. The methodology is not related to specific technologies or innovation fields and can thus be easily transferred. An evaluation of current funding programmes related to “Healthy Living and Sustainable Energy” shows how to apply it. The concepts uncover possible synergy potential between the main funding programmes of the EU, the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Federal Government and provide a comprehensive picture.
Full concepts are available for the two innovation fields “Health” and “Energy” and a short concept for “Food”. The short concept differs in the scale of the analyses, but not in the methodological approach.
Full Concept “Health”
The full concept “Health” draws together the synergy potential from funding programmes of the EU, Germany and North Rhine-Westphalia as of December 2022.
Full Concept “Energy”
The full concept “Energy” draws together the synergy potential from funding programmes of the EU, Germany and North Rhine-Westphalia as of December 2022.
Short Concept “Food”
The short concept “Food” draws together, but in less depth, the synergy potential from funding programmes of the EU, Germany and North Rhine-Westphalia as of December 2022.
Recommendations for the use of synergy potential
The recommendations are intended to help those assigned with the task of developing funding programmes in North Rhine-Westphalia – especially in the NRW ERDF/JTF Programme 2021-2027 – to shape the general conditions for achieving more synergies with Horizon Europe. Supplementary advice is available to show how synergy potential can be used flexibly.
