Living labs for sustainable business takeover

Universities of applied sciences can apply for funding for thematic research with the aim of promoting the contribution of universities of applied sciences in specific societal challenges in the green domain.


In December 2019 Regieorgaan SIA opened a call named Living labs for sustainable business takeover. Within that call 6 living labs were financed. The focus of that call for proposals was the process of guiding a business takeover, in which the social-emotional aspect and the financial trajectory are of crucial importance.

In the living labs set up at the time, work was done on the infrastructure with which young entrepreneurs can be supported in the process of taking over an agricultural company.

The aim of the Living labs for sustainable business takeover call of 2022 is that in every new project the advice formed from all living labs from the previous call is applied in practice where possible and assessed for their effectiveness. Where it is of added value, the knowledge and insights can also be elaborated further.

Submit your project before September 27, 2022.
