Cybersecurity Innovation Fund

The Cybersecurity Innovation Fund (CIF-NL) aims to boost cybersecurity innovation. This is necessary because the Netherlands is rapidly digitising and cybersecurity is of great importance. Companies and research organisations could apply for subsidy to (further) develop cybersecurity solutions. The subsidy is currently closed.

About NEXIS 

NEXIS is the National Coordination Centre (NCC-NL) for cybersecurity innovation. NEXIS aims to promote knowledge exchange, cooperation and innovation in cybersecurity in the Netherlands and Europe.

Within Europe, NEXIS cooperates with the European Cybersecurity Competence Centre (ECCC) and an EU-wide network of 27 national coordination centres (NCCs). This network is responsible for developing the cybersecurity work programme within the European Digital Europe subsidy programme. For this programme, €1.65 billion is available for cybersecurity innovations from 2021-2027. We are also collaborating on drafting cybersecurity innovation priorities for the Horizon Europe Programme. In this programme, NEXIS represents the interests of the Netherlands. In addition, NEXIS connects Dutch parties with a European community to involve them in international projects and help them form (international) consortiums. This allows them to claim European subsidies for cybersecurity innovation successfully. 

Cooperation dcypher
