There are several funding opportunities for developing new, or expanding existing, research infrastructures within Horizon 2020.
Frontier research often generates unexpected or new opportunities for commercial or societal application. The ERC Proof of Concept Grants aim to maximise the value of the excellent research that the ERC funds, by funding further work to verify the innovation potential of ideas arising from ERC funded projects.
The LEO Foundation supports international dermatological research projects and activities that address issues in disease understanding, disease treatment, disease awareness and patient wellbeing. Deadlines: several in 2017.
Joint transnational call on "Transforming the global economy from a dependence on fossil raw materials to a sustainable bio-based economy" (ERA-CoBioTech).
Funding is available for transnational collaborative and multidisciplinary projects within biotechnology for a sustainable bioeconomy. Deadline for pre-proposals: 2 March 2017.
JPI HDHL is working on the challenge to prevent or delay the onset of diet-related chronic diseases. This rapid action call will support community-led working groups that can push forward the field of diet-related chronic diseases. Deadline: 29 August 2017 @ 4pm.
ERC Advanced Grants allow exceptional established research leaders of any nationality and any age to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in their respective research fields or other domains.
The Nordic Cancer Union (NCU) provides funding to support and stimulate collaborative cancer research within the Nordic countries. NCU research grants are provided for one year. Further support for the project will require a new, yearly application.

The UTFORSK Partnership Programme supports project cooperation between higher education institutions in Norway and higher education institutions in Brazil, China, India, Japan, Russia and South Africa.
The Exploratory Pre-seed Program is a stimulus fund established to accelerate commercialization of biomedical research findings and development of novel technologies within the life sciences.
The goal of an Exploratory Pre-seed Grant is to stimulate entrepreneurship and to explore the potential of research findings at a very early stage (pre-seed), and to prepare the project for a full pre-seed grant at a later stage.
The program seeks to support application-oriented research and to test new ideas that may lead to the development of new medical treatments, disease prevention, devices and diagnostic methods as well as new industrial biotechnology in the life science area.
The applicants can be faculty members, researchers and students based at universities, hospitals and other knowledge institutions in the Nordic countries.
Researcher Project is aimed at established researchers. To succeed within this application type, the project manager and project team must be particularly talented, have good track records, and be among the best in their field.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation primarily awards grants for research within biomedicine, biotechnology, general practice and family medicine, nursing and art history at public research institutions.
