The new division will improve the innovation capacity at FFI and in the defence sector by further developing the triangular model. This involves further developing good collaboration models between operational user environments, the industry, and research environments.
FFI’s industrial cooperation will be expanded to include military and civilian actors with the relevant expertise or technology. The division will facilitate increased innovation, testing and experimentation to develop new technological solutions and concepts, based on rapidly adopting new technology.
The division is thus responsible for administrating the funding of innovation and experimentation projects in the sector. In addition, it is desirable to strengthen spin-off industry from FFI.
The division coordinates FFI’s extensive national and international research collaboration, and is responsible for our efforts towards the European Defence Research Programme (EDRP).
