To emphasise the importance of high tech innovation to societal themes and missions more clearly and to stimulate research and collaboration, the Topsector HTSM will organise the annual HitMat Call. This is a funding opportunity to inspire consortia to come up with excellent high tech solutions in Public Private partnership programs.
From Cybersecurity to circular building
Topics covered in the research proposals include cybersecurity by design, ultrasonic brain modulation, optimization of traffic flow in the city, extraction of nitrogen compounds from animal manure and eco-efficient and circular construction.
HiTMaT Call 2021
The third HiTMaT Call has opened. The HiTMaT is a competition between the best R&D proposals for high-tech PPP that offer solutions for the social themes and missions of the Netherlands. In 2020, 60 research proposals were submitted, 15 of which were nominated and 10 projects ultimately won € 25,000 in germ funding. Who has the best ideas this year?
Project proposals can be submitted from April 7 through the HitMat Call 2021 website *. The deadline for submitting applications is May 18, 2021, 14:00 CEST.
* Proposals submitted by email will not be accepted.
Webinar: Do’s & Dont’s
In this webinar Frans van der Wel, PPP employee Holland High Tech, explains the rules of the game surrounding this call.

HiTMat 2019 and 2020
After a cautious start in 2019, we received no fewer than 60 project proposals by 2020 from scientists from industry and research organizations. Five expert committees selected 15 proposals as finalists for the 2020 edition. On Wednesday 7 October 2020, the 15 finalists presented their research proposal. The 10 prize winners were announced during the Autumn Event on October 30, 2020. These winners will receive an amount of € 25,000 in seed money for a public-private partnership project in which their high-tech research innovation is linked to one of the 5 social themes (Health and care, Climate and Circular Economy, Security, Mobility, Agriculture, Water and Food).
