MIT R&D-collaboration

The MIT-collaboration arrangement aims to stimulate innovation by SMEs by granting subsidies. Eligible projects adhere to the Knowledge and Innovatenion Agendas (KIAs) of the Top Sector policy.

Why MIT R&D collaboration?

SME entrepeneurs can get subsidy for their R&D projects through MIT. Collaborative innovation projects become more affordable this way.


I have a background in Medical Engineering, with a focus on technology. From there I also gained experience with programming. Based on this experience, I like to think along about the complex programming-technical issues that my customers deal with. I then use my expertise by making the required translation to the subsidy provider in order to increase the chance of success. In this way I hope to be able to contribute to the most innovative developments in the Netherlands!
