Do IoT Vouchers for 5G Innovation in Zuid-Holland

As of 10th May 2021, Kansen voor West opened the funding scheme ‘Do IoT Vouchers for 5G Innovation in Zuid-Holland’. A total budget of € 500,000 is available, intended for companies that develop innovations based on 5G technology. The vouchers make the expertise and facilities of Do IoT Fieldlab easily accessible to innovative entrepreneurs.

The vouchers are intended for SME’s who want to develop, test and demonstrate innovations with 5G technology that contribute to a better society. These innovative entrepreneurs can use the vouchers at Do IoT Fieldlab to make use of the facilities, expertise and support.

The funding scheme includes three types of vouchers:

The feasibility voucher can be used as financial support for the deployment of experts and the use of facilities of Do IoT Fieldlab in a company’s project for the investigation into the technical feasibility and market potential of an innovation idea. With this voucher you will be reimbursed a maximum of 90% of the costs invoiced by TU Delft (ex. VAT) up to a maximum amount of € 10,000.

A pilot voucher can be used for the deployment of experts and the use of test facilities of Do IoT Fieldlab in a company’s project to test and validate an innovation in practice. With this voucher you will be reimbursed a maximum of 80% of the costs invoiced by TU Delft (ex. VAT) with a maximum amount of € 25,000.

The pilot-plus (R&D) voucher is intended for support in the deployment of experts from Do IoT Fieldlab in a company’s project for the development and testing of a prototype using the Do IoT Fieldlab facilities. With this voucher you will be reimbursed a maximum of 90% of the costs for use of Do IoT Fieldlab, invoiced by TU Delft (ex. VAT) up to a maximum amount of € 25,000, and 50% of the prototyping costs, invoiced by TU Delft, up to a maximum amount of € 25,000.
