PPP Allowance (Match Call)
Top Sector Life Sciences & Health (LSH) supports innovative research and development realised by public-private partnerships (PPPs) of the Dutch LSH sector. The Top Sector brings together stakeholders in a shared, consolidated innovation infrastructure. By means of PPP Allowance, the Top Sector provides a financial instrument to help consortia consisting of research organisations, knowledge institutes, companies, and health foundations to realise their innovative ideas.
By identifying contributions of private partners in PPPs in the LSH sector, the Topconsortia for Knowledge and Innovation’s (TKI) office of the Top Sector can apply for PPP Allowance at the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and Ministry of Economic Affairs. Hereafter, the allocated PPP Allowance can be used to support new research projects by PPPs. Due to the growing LSH sector and familiarity with the PPP Allowance regulation, the financial potential of the PPP Allowance for the LSH sector has increased exponentially: from €4M in 2013 to almost €65M in 2019.
With our ongoing Match Call, PPPs are invited to apply for PPP Allowance. The proposed project applications must contribute to one of the five missions that have been proposed by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports and are explained in detail in the Knowledge and Innovation Agenda 2020-2023 of the Top Sector LSH. All applications are evaluated by an evaluation committee at two set moments per year and the board of the Top Sector LSH decides if an application is honoured. In 2020, the application deadlines are 18 March and 7 October.
