Smoltek has been granted feasibility study support by Vinnova

Smoltek is involved in devel­op­ing Swedish cut­ting-edge exper­tise in smarter elec­tron­ics sys­tems – a Vin­no­va inno­va­tion pro­gram backed by the Swedish Ener­gy Agency and Formas.

Through Vin­no­va, Smoltek has been grant­ed finan­cial sup­port for fea­si­bil­i­ty stud­ies for the project: “Towards the inte­gra­tion of car­bon-based capac­i­tors in indus­tri­al wafer production”.

The sup­port cor­re­sponds to 50% of the project cost (a max­i­mum of SEK 400,000).

In addi­tion, a com­plet­ed fea­si­bil­i­ty study is a pre­req­ui­site for being able to apply for sup­port for future announce­ments with­in the pro­gram Smarter Elec­tron­ic Systems.
