Cabinet decision on second round National Growth Fund

National Growth Fund: millions for knowledge development and innovation projects in Limburg

The Dutch Cabinet's decision on the allocation of the National Growth Fund offers perspective for the further strengthening of knowledge development and innovation in Limburg. The conditional grant for the Einstein Telescope provides a strong basis for the campaign to build an underground observatory in southern Limburg, together with Belgium and Germany, to measure gravity waves. Other allocations involving Maastricht University are aimed at accelerating the development of cancer drugs, strengthening education in the Netherlands and matching supply and demand on the labour market better through lifelong learning. The Brightlands Chemelot Campus can also, under certain conditions, continue with its work with circular plastics.
