Mission: Turning policy into reality
SenterNovem is an agency of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. We promote sustainable development and innovation, both within the Netherlands and abroad. We aim to achieve tangible results that have a positive effect on the economy and on society as a whole.
Our core competence is converting government policy into reality. On behalf of the Dutch government we implement policies regarding:
· Energy and Climate Change
· Environment and Spatial Planning
SenterNovem also works on behalf of international organisations such as the European Union, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and foreign governments. Through us these organisations gain access to a broad Dutch network of knowledge institutes, research centres, trade associations, companies and government officials. We also participate in numerous international platforms and counselling groups.
Our budget in 2006 was 1.4 billion euro in the various schemes, half in the form of tax credits, half in subsidies and soft loans, and 100 million euro for the SenterNovem organisation.
Activities and staff: our 1,500 staff members offer private and public organisations in the Netherlands the following services:
· financial support in various schemes
· the development of (international) knowledge networks
· knowledge dissemination
· setting up and guiding transition processes
· policy development advice
SenterNovem's national and international programmes are complementary and support both national and international policies.
