KIEM HighTech 2024

With the KIEM HighTech 2024 subsidy scheme, Holland High Tech and Regieorgaan SIA stimulate technical innovation through collaboration between researchers, SMEs and other practical partners.


The Netherlands faces major social and economic challenges. Our high-tech sector plays a crucial role in the urgent transitions required for this: the energy transition, the circular transition and the development of digitalization and key technologies (also read our VISION 2030 for more information).

Purpose KIEM HighTech

The aim of KIEM HighTech is to (exploratively) investigate new practical questions through practice-oriented research activities. These research activities are carried out by a network of knowledge institutions and practice partners (companies). With this scheme, the SIA organization encourages both network formation and the exploration of practical questions that could be a seed for a follow-up project or a technological innovation.
