THE NETHERLANDS, Northern Netherlands
by: Northern Netherlands Alliance (SNN) (Public authority)
S3 domain: Instead of indicating specific S3 domains, the Northern Netherlands has designated four societal challenges as a starting point for their RIS3. One of those is Reliable, Clean and Efficient Energy, to which the good practice directly contributes. It however also directly or indirectly contributes to the other challenges, which are outlined in the next section.
Energy topics: Smart cities
Energy topics: Bioenergy / Wind Power (onshore) / other Energy Efficiency (in Industry, Transport, Services...)
Innovation type: Technological / Service
Level of Good Practice implementation: Regional
Energy & S3 in the Northern Netherlands
Northern Netherlands Alliance (SNN) is the Managing Authority (MA) of the OP ERDF for the Northern Netherlands. SNN is also responsible for the RIS3, in which energy plays a prominent role. This is reflected in the OP ERDF, the main innovation support instrument and implementation instrument of the RIS3, which focuses on TO1 (innovation) and TO4 (CO2 reduction) and on creating synergies between both objectives.
