Research and Development (Promotion) Act (WBSO)

Last updated: 3 October 2019

WBSO provides fiscal benefits for research and development activities by companies. The specific policy measures on energy innovation mainly focus on research programmes and projects through the Top Sector Energy (TSE) approach. This joint network of companies, R&D institutes, universities and government has been the main framework since 2012 and includes its own subsidy scheme and several associated subsidy schemes such as the MIT (for small and medium-sized enterprises), DEI (demonstration projects) and HER (reducing the costs of renewable energy technologies). Public spending on energy innovations is monitored by RVO.nl
