The national and European subsidy landscape evolves continuously; which also applies to the regional level, including the Utrecht region. In 2021, a considerable budget will be made available through various subsidy schemes for projects that contribute to strengthen and develop the Region (Utrecht). Sharing information and experiences to the StartupUtrecht community and partners is crucial. As a part of this, PNO will enter the dialogue with (semi-) public and private actors in the Region to get a clear picture of the programmatic objectives and to find out more about current initiatives. The ultimate goal is to bring relevant companies together and develop consortia around the specific objectives of these progams and to identify subsidy/funding opportunities.
