These are challenging times and we realise that, at this moment, for many organisations innovation may not be a priority. Still many of the projects and innovation tenders are ongoing and we want to inform you about some important notices.
Extended deadline MOOI tender
First of all, we would like to address the MOOI tender. Due to current circumstances the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy and the Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations in consultation with RVO and Topsector Energy have decided to extend the deadline for application. The extended deadline will provide consortia with some extra time to prepare their application.
The original deadline for pre-application will be postponed by four weeks to 18 May 2020,
17:00 hrs. The final application can be done between 4 August 2020 and 6 October 2020
, 17:00 hrs.
Please note that this is still preliminary information and subject to publication in the Government Gazette (Staatscourant).
You can find the original news item here
(in Dutch). Please check the RVO website
for more information and updates.
