The Hague Security Delta has taken the initiative to stimulate cooperation with other regions that are strong in safety and security, around the world. Therefore, HSD is part of Global EPIC, and collaborates with EU clusters.
Global EPIC is designed to combat growing world challenges by facilitating global collaboration while enabling positive local cybersecurity and economic benefits. This initiative will see 14 global ecosystems co-creating and adopting world-changing solutions to high-impact cybersecurity challenges, both current and emergent. The ecosystems involved come from 10 different countries spanning 3 continents, reflecting the truly global nature of the partnership.
Another form of collaboration, partially facilitated by HSD, are the Partners for International Business (PIB). The goal of these PIB are to offer access to foreign markets for Dutch companies. PIB-programmes are currently operational in Japan and India.
Another opportunity of exporing new markets, are softlanding programmes. These programmes offera unique opportunity to ‘soft land’ for a trial period in the market of HSD’s partner-ecosystems. It provides a low risk entry trial to companies and entrepreneurs entering a new international market, accessing the resources they need to more readily tap into commercial opportunities.
There are soft-landing programmes with the US and Canada and, on top of that, the Global EPIC Soft-Landing Programme offers opportunities to soft-land in Taiwan, Poland, the UK, Canada and the US.
In Europe, HSD collaborates with clusters in the regions France, Denmark, Finland, and Germany. Collaboration between these security clusters provides added value for a more secure Europe. Their collaboration creates various scale benefits. For example better utilisation of facilities and more opportunities for specialisation.
