The Lars Erik Lundberg Foundation for Research and Education supports projects that bring together the fields of engineering/science and economics and thereby focus on the role of technology in the competitiveness of enterprises. This area includes research with a business economics and technology orientation related to the dynamics involved in building, developing and exploiting the technical know-how of businesses. Projects involving research into production and product development processes also fit into this area, as do projects related to the conditions which are fundamental to an innovative business climate, entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship.
Projects that contain clear research questions that also appear to be answerable with the proposed methods have an advantage, as do the projects that clearly show from which knowledge platform they are based. It is also an advantage if the project is innovative and can be expected to take the research front forward.
