Health~Holland webinar about PPP-Allowance
Researchers and companies active in the Life Sciences & Health sector are continuously searching for suitable ways to fund their R&D. The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Subsidy of Top Sector Life Sciences & Health (LSH) aims to provide funding for public-private consortia. This afternoon (31 January), the webinar will discuss the details of this funding opportunity. After attending, this so-called PPP-Allowance (former TKI-Allowance) of Top Sector LSH will therefore no longer have secrets for you. You will learn whether the instrument is suitable for your specific R&D projects, what it entails for you and your consortium partners, what the requirements are, and how to submit a proposal. As a seasoned biotech entrepreneur and member of the Top Team LSH, Hans Schikan will host the webinar. Our guest speaker, Ernst Nagel, operational director of Top Sector LSH, will unravel all secrets of the PPP-Allowance. During this interactive webinar, there will be ample opportunity to ask questions. Don’t hesitate and join us online!

Launching Project Page
2017 promises to be quite a dynamic year, politically, businesswise as well as scientifically. As partners of the Top Sector we all stand to benefit from it and want to share these benefits with society.
Given the many elections for new parliaments, especially in the Netherlands in March, some changes can be expected both nationally and internationally. The new Dutch government will shape the future of the Top Sector policies. We expect it will be in line with our increasing success during the recent years.
At the Top Sector Life Sciences & Health (LSH) we belief that our political leaders, parliament and the new government will adopt the proposition of the Knowledge Coalition, as described in the Dutch National Research Agenda.
If their proposition is adopted the sector will become even more vibrant still, as can be seen from all the national and international events. All things being considered, our cooperative groundwork in 2017 is going to be paramount for the success of the sector and our mission set in the previous years: vital functioning citizens in a healthy economy.
