  10. The Grand Solutions programme Purpose The Grand Solutions programme invests in ambitious, and preferably, interdisciplinary research and innovation projects that can create new, specific solutions to important, politically prioritized societal challenges and create value throughout Denmark. Grand Solutions projects typically have a high risk profile and focus on ambitious results with high value creation, whether in the form of new knowledge, improved and/or new processes, systems, products or solutions to politically prioritized societal challenges.

  11. Interdisciplinary Grand Solutions projects good idea! Consider how different disciplines can complement each other in order to: Think out of the box higher degree of innovation Boost value for the society optimize the impact of the solution in the long run Improve implementation the solution considers the end-user from the beginning Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) are essential when it comes to: Human/social decisions (e.g. behavior) Technology acceptance (e.g. beliefs, information) Ethical considerations Market understanding (e.g. regulations, commercial trends) Business models Impact measurement Design and much more!

  14. 2. Tips for writing the application 14

  15. Points of attention Do Don t Start well in advance!!! Make sure you understand the three decision criteria and the sub criteria. Your challenge and solution must be specific. Clarify how you challenge state of the art. Address ethical considerations. Address risks. Make sure your project is result oriented and specific (concrete milestones and quantifiable deliverables). Make your budget match your scope and project activities. Have someone else to review and critique your proposal. Make your application understandable for foreign persons, - international peers also assess the application. Don t forget why the project is important for Denmark. Don t forget how the project create impact beyond project lifetime. Don t be over-ambitious and over-selling. Don t use buzzwords as a selling point Don t fill the whole application form with history and/or past activities Don t submit an incomplete application form (remember to answer all questions) Don t use superficial or generic descriptions of risk mitigations Don t forget to include ALL partners!
