Dutch startups, SME suppliers and large companies guaranteed access to the latest micro and nanoelectronics and software.

Minister Micky Adriaansens (Economic Affairs and Climate Policy): “The Netherlands is committed to keeping our business community competitive and innovative in the EU. While maintaining an open economy, we can take a more active role in preserving knowledge, safeguarding a level playing field and innovations. In a globally competitive economy, this also entails a different role for the Dutch government. That is why we financially support Dutch companies and knowledge institutions that participate in strategic European innovation cooperation.”

The Netherlands participates in 2 'Important Projects of Common European Interest', in the field of microelectronics (€230 million) and cloud infrastructure (€70 million). 6 Dutch projects in the field of micro- and nanoelectronics have now been notified to the European Commission by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy (EZK).

The 6 Dutch projects all have a strategic position in the global semiconductor chain from research, development, supply to production. With their plans, these start-ups, SME suppliers, large companies and knowledge institutions contribute to Dutch and European technological developments. It concerns these 6 projects: radar and 6G technology (both NXP), realization of the latest machines for advanced semiconductor production (ASML and Nearfield Instruments), developments for innovations in semiconductor testing (Thermo Fisher), integrated photonics solutions (SMART Photonics).

Project ME2 is aimed at strengthening the production chain and maintaining the competitive advantage of the innovative European tech industry. This guarantees Dutch startups, SME suppliers and large companies access to the latest micro and nanoelectronics and software.
