The European Union (EU) offers grants or subsidies in several fields. Some are distributed by the government, some by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, some by the EU itself. Your company may be eligible for EU funding.
Call for proposal
When an EU grant opens, a Call for proposal is issued. This Call determines the period in which you can apply. To apply, you usually have to submit a plan. You have to meet the conditions stated in the Call.
Where do I find the EU subsidies?
There are several websites on which you can find information on EU subsidies and how to apply for them:
- The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) Subsidies and Programmes tool offers information and allows you to submit your application to several subsidies in the field of business, innovation and energy-saving, for instance Horizon2020 and COSME.
- The European Commission’s Single Electronic Data Interchange Area (SEDIA) lets you search for funding and tender projects based on programmes.
- If you can read Dutch, you can find extensive information on European subsidies on Europa-Nu: Europa-nu: subsidies van de Europese Unie 2014 -2020
- The Association of Dutch Municipalities, VNG, launched a Subsidy Guide 2014-2020 (pdf, in Dutch) that lists all EU subsidies granted on a municipal level.
