As of today, The Hague City Council will make the The Hague Security Delta (HSD) Development Fund accessible for funding. The HSD Development Fund, with an initial budget of €1 million, has been launched to stimulate innovation in the security domain. Applications can be submitted until 30 September 2013. Proposals will be assessed on their relevance to the security domain, the innovativeness of the ideas, the level of public-private collaboration, and their potential for creating additional market opportunities. The launch of this initiative allows The Hague Security Delta to make another big step towards its ambition to stimulate economic development and innovation in security.
The HSD Development Fund is made available thanks to the “Kansen voor West” programme, part of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) initiative to stimulate regional competitiveness.
