HIP Norway

The Humanitarian Innovation Programme

The Humanitarian Innovation Programme supports innovation partnerships between the humanitarian and private sector, both at the early stage and after successful piloting. Applicants can either apply for funding to conduct an innovation friendly or innovative procurement to co-develop a solution with a private sector partner (innovation lab grant), or to scale an existing innovation developed with a private sector partner (scaling grant).

Objectives and target group for the programme

HIP Norway is a grant and support mechanism, financed by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and administered by Innovation Norway.

HIP Norway aims to strengthen efforts to:

  • Save lives, alleviate distress and safeguard human dignity in humanitarian crises.
  • Provide people in need with the necessary protection and assistance in line with humanitarian principles.

To contribute to achieving the overall goal, HIP Norway will support projects that develop and scale innovative solutions that will contribute to smarter, better, more sustainable, and cost-effective emergency aid.
