Seven new innovation projects from different universities around the country are getting 142.7 million euros to invest into the research and development of the ‘Zwaartekracht’ program. The program enables researchers to carry out top-level university research and multidisciplinary cooperation for ten years. One of the pillars of the program is cooperation across disciplines and universities.

Holland High Tech are taking part in two out of the seven projects:

Durable artificial materials

The first project focuses on a new generation of intelligent, dynamic plastics, that by interacting with the environment, offer better performance, are easily degradable and will be reusable.

Materials for the quantum age

The other project will be researching new materials with stable quantum states. Stable quantum states can form the basis for very powerful new methods of quantum computing and quantum information processing.
