Multi-million investment jump-starts ambitious Dutch mobility programme

Two large consortia of Dutch companies and knowledge institutes in the mobility and transport sector will receive 47 million euros in government funding to realize breakthroughs in electrification and hydrogen applications in automotive, maritime and air transport. That is what the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate announced on November 29th. By working together, the parties involved want to make the Netherlands a frontrunner in green and clean mobility. Together they contribute over 26 million euros. 

Important support in the transition towards sustainable mobility

Albie van Buel, managing director of RAI Automotive Industry NL, is proud that the efforts of all parties have been rewarded. “As an organisation, we have focused on a substantial R&D support package for the Automotive sector since the start of the Corona pandemic. It is great to see that these projects now receive the important support to enable further technological developments that make the necessary transition towards sustainable mobility possible.”

Full speed ahead

Director of Brainport Development Paul van Nunen is pleased that the subsidies are granted by the Ministry. “The collaborating parties have great ambitions. The Netherlands wants to continue to play a leading role in the global transition towards a sustainable mobility system. By joining forces, we can make the Netherlands a frontrunner in green, smart mobility. The allocation of funding to these parts of the program is a great boost. We will continue with a lot of energy.”
