NEXTGEN HIGHTECH programme great boost for our work on electron microscopy
Just before Easter, the Dutch government decided to support the NEXTGEN HIGHTECH programme within the National Growthfund. This is a great boost for the lab of Jacob Hoogenboom and that of Carlas Smith (3mE) to continue their work on electron microscopy, automation, and metrology for life sciences with our partners Technolution Advance, Delmic, and many others.
The NXTGEN HIGHTECH program will receive a contribution of 450 million euros from the National Growth Fund in order to stimulate structural and sustainable economic growth in the Netherlands. The decision of the advisory committee chaired by Jeroen Dijsselbloem was adopted by the Council of Ministers today. In NXTGEN HIGHTECH, six domains offer high-tech solutions for a new generation of technology for the future generation of Dutch people, our children. NXTGEN HIGHTECH is one of a total of 28 approved innovation proposals and was submitted by Minister Micky Adriaansens of Economic Affairs and Climate in the second round of the National Growth Fund.
