Boosting innovation in the SME sector
SMEs must innovate continuously to stay competitive at the top. The government concurs with this view. So the Netherlands Investment Agency (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland/RVO) has set up the MIT scheme for regional and top sectors, and other initiatives, to boost innovation among small and medium-sized enterprises. The RVO has created various instruments for this purpose, below you will find all current options, via Holland High Tech (TKI HTSM) or directly via RVO.
