Do you work together with foreign partners on an energy-innovation project? You can apply for the Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETPartnership) subsidy. With this subsidy you can showcase your project at your business location to the public and potential investors. This way you can increase your visibility and strengthen your position on the international energy market.
The CETPartnership is meant for costs incurred by your international cooperation. For example research and equipment costs, or travel and accommodation costs.
When do you qualify
Your energy-innovation project must meet the European conditions of the Joint Call 2023, among others:
- the project must be a partnership between you and 2 or more other foreign partners
- the partnership consists of partners from at least 3 different countries
- at least 1 partner must be established in another EU country
Your project must also meet national conditions. In the Netherlands, a project must be eligible for at least one of the following subsidies:
How to apply?
To apply for the CETPartnership subsidy you need to submit a pre-proposal for the selected module to CETPartnership and to the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). You can submit the pre-proposal from 20 September until 22 November 2023, 14:00 hours to CETPartnership and until 24 November 2023 to the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO, in Dutch).
CETPartnership will evaluate your pre-proposal. If approved, you apply nationally through either the HER+ subsidy or DEI+ subsidy with RVO. For the international part of the subsidy you submit a full proposal before 27 March 2024, 14:00 hours directly to CETPartnership.
