Subsidy for Strengthening Cyber Resilience partnerships

28 jun 2024

Today, Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy Micky Adriaansens announced that the Strengthening Cyber Resilience subsidy scheme will be reopened from 2 September 2024. Through this subsidy scheme, the Digital Trust Center (DTC) encourages public-private partnerships to take action to improve the cybersecurity of sectors, regions and chains. This year, for the first time, the subsidy scheme will also be open to the Caribbean Netherlands.

Joining forces on cyber resilience

The aim of the subsidy scheme is to create networks in which members can put their knowledge and skills in the field of cyber resilience to good use. In a cyber resilience network, entrepreneurs enter into long-term collaboration with other organisations to step up cyber resilience, within and between non-vital industries, sectors and regions.

In 2024, a total sum of 600,000 euros is available for the best project plans developed to improve cyber resilience among companies. The maximum funding per project is 150,000 euros. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) is responsible for implementing this subsidy scheme.

Since it was first launched in 2018, the scheme has awarded subsidies to 37 collaborative projects. Learn more about the projects that received a subsidy in 2023 or in previous years.
