Ministry of Economic Affairs to Support HSD

The Hague Security Delta receives official support from the Ministry of Economic Affairs. The Ministry concentrates its innovation policy on 9 leading sectors in which The Netherlands already excels. The Dutch National Roadmap Security is part of Top-sector High Tech Systems and Materials and in that document, HSD is recognised as a centre of cooperation in security and as an experimental area for innovative solutions and products. As flywheel project of the Roadmap Security, the HSD network partners are setting up the national security innovation centre in The Hague Security Delta. Further growth in security must come through interaction between the business community, knowledge institutions and government. The Hague region is seen as a breeding ground for innovation in security and has a track record in cooperation in the triple helix.
