Call for proposals
On Nov 1st, OPZuid has opened a new call for proposals. The goal of the OPZuid program is to strengthen and broaden the open innovation system in the south of the Netherlands for example by living labs or testing grounds. This tender focusses on the cross-over between the three international top clusters (high tech systems & materials, chemistry & materials, agrofood & horticulture and starting materials) and the four national top clusters (biobased, logistics, maintenance, life science & health). The subsidy percentage is 35% and the deadline is closing on February 29th, 2016.
