Financial Support Network Activities

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a crucial role within Top Sector LSH (Health~Holland). Health~Holland connects innovative SMEs with the right parties to promote their product development and to strengthen their networks. In order to do this Health~Holland offers financial support for network activities, such as master classes, workshops or conferences.

On a yearly basis Health~Holland supports an average of 55 network activities with a reach of 2,500 SMEs. With this, Health~Holland strengthens the Dutch leading position in the field of innovative solutions and cooperation in the LSH sector. All events with the Health~Holland logo next to it on the events page are supported by Health~Holland.

Applying for financial support

It is possible to apply for financial support through our network activities committee. Application is possible by filling in the application forms and e-mailing them to Jochem Christiaansen. The application forms can be found at the bottom of this page under the section "downloads". The network activities committee meets every 2 weeks to review the applications.

A number of guidelines have been drawn up to take into account before filling in the forms:

  1. It is important that the application shows what the benefits are for the SME participants and how many SME participants are expected.
  2. It is important that the application shows how the network activity ties in with the Health & Care missions.
  3. Submit application to Jochem Christiaansen +/- 4 months before the event takes place.
  4. Health~Holland mainly supports costs for third parties (e.g. location costs and catering). No support is offered for costs of rooms and/or flights for participants.
  5. Health~Holland is not the only party to provide support for the network activity, other parties are also involved who bear costs.
