KIA: Knowledge and Innovation Agenda
KIA Circular Economy 2020-2023
The Knowledge and Innovation Covenant Circular Economy KIA-CE (in Dutch) is available!
This has put an end to an intensive process of making an inventory, formulating, classifying and prioritizing the many knowledge questions that relate to the transition to a circular economy.
The Agenda for CE is a living agenda. The understanding of reality changes and continuously new opportunities are identified. Therefore we keep a living record of items that could be a part of the Innovation Agenda for the Dutch Circular Economy. Such items will be added shortly.
Here you will find the draft version of the Chem.I.KIA (in Dutch): the collected contribution of Holland Chemistry to the mission-driven innovation policy. This document has been prepared by the four disciplinary road map teams (programme councils) of Holland Chemistry, namely Chemistry of Advanced Materials, Chemical Conversion, Process Technology and Synthesis, Chemistry of Life and Chemical Nanotechnology and Devices.
This version is intended for consultation of the chemistry community.
KIC 2020-2023 signed! Investments in innovation increased to € 4.9 billion in 2020
Companies, knowledge institutions and governments will jointly invest € 4.9 billion in 2020 in the government’s renewed top sector and innovation policy. Of this, 2.05 billion comes from companies and 2.85 billion from public funds. This is a doubling compared to this year. This is stated in the knowledge and innovation covenant 2020-2023 (KIC), which was sent to the Lower House by State Secretary Mona Keijzer (Economic Affairs and Climate) yesterday. State Secretary Keijzer presented the KIC at the Airborne company in The Hague, together with Minister Ingrid van Engelshoven (Education, Culture and Science).
In the Knowledge and Innovation Contract 2018-2019, companies, social institutions, knowledge parties and governments will confirm their commitment to the important innovation themes for the years 2018-2019. This builds on the cooperation that has been set in motion in recent years.
Knowledge and Innovation Agenda 2016-2019
At the beginning of June 2015, the Knowledge and Innovation Agenda 2016-2019 (KIA) of the Top Sector Chemistry was submitted to the Ministry of Economic Affairs. This contains the roadmaps of the four main lines of the Top Sector Chemistry. The roadmaps describe the ambitions and important areas of interest that Holland Chemistry wants to work with knowledge institutions and the government on.
The executive summary of the Knowledge and Innovation Agenda can be found here.
