Dear all,
For the execution of our mission-oriented innovation program, a new subsidy instrument is introduced: The ‘Missiegedreven Onderzoek, Ontwikkeling en Innovatie (Mission-oriented Research, Development and Innovation) in short MOOI subsidy scheme with a total budget of over 10 million euro!
MOOI supports the major steps towards achieving the objectives in our program by stimulating partnerships with an integrated approach leading to a greater chance of success of the innovations. The TKI Wind op Zee and RVO will inform you about this new approach during the Matchmaking Day TKI Wind op Zee on February 13th in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht. View the prelimanary program here.

I would like to explicitly invite participants of the TKI Wind op Zee to present their organization and / or innovation at the innovation market of the Matchmaking Day. Please indicate during your registration for the event whether you are interested to participate in the innovation market. Amber Koertshuis can answer any question you might have regarding the innovation market.

SMEs are invited to pitch their project (idea) or innovation during the drinks between 4:45 and 5:15 pm. You can fill in a short description of your project (idea) or innovation during the registration process. Please note, that we have limited space available for these pitches, which may demand us to make a selection between applicants. We will inform you about the status of your request.

Please register timely so that we can take your preferences for the matchmaking into account in preparing the day. I hope to see you on the 13th of February!

Bob Meijer

Furthermore, I would like to inform you on:

Demonstration Energy and climate Innovation (DEI+ 2020) renewed

Are you investing in renewable energy sources, such as wind energy, solar energy and geothermal energy? Do you have a solution for flexibilisation of the energy system? Then you are invited to apply for a subsidy on pilot projects and demonstration projects within the DEI + scheme. The available budget for various themes is € 86.1 million.

In a pilot project, you can test and improve a new technology in a representative test set-up. In a demonstration project, you invest in a production installation that remains in use even after the subsidy project has ended. The projects must be innovative.
