Health~Holland International Kickstarter for Public-Private Partnerships Call Open for 2022

Top Sector Life Sciences & Health has launched the 2022 Kickstarter Call for international R&D cooperation.

The aim of the HHINT Kickstarter for Public-Private Partnerships programme is to stimulate international, public-private partnerships (PPP). Within the framework of the programme, companies and recognised knowledge institutions are invited to apply for financial support (PPP Allowance) to help them establish a long lasting foreign public-private partnership in R&D. Eligible projects may involve fundamental research, industrial research or experimental development, or a combination thereof.

The main applicant must be a company or recognised knowledge institution located in the Netherlands. The consortium must consist of at least one company and at least one research organisation or knowledge institution. One of the consortium partners must be a foreign organisation/company.

The total available amount of PPP Allowance for 2022 is €600,000. The PPP Allowance covers 25% (experimental development) to 50% (fundamental/industrial research) of the total fundable project costs. The amount of PPP Allowance that can be applied for is between €50,000 and €120,000 per project. The maximum project duration is 18 months.

Applications may be submitted on a continuous basis until 15 September 2022 (17:00 CET).

They will be evaluated and awarded based on the ‘first come, first served’ principle.
