The Dutch government is to implement a permanent increase to its multiannual programme for key enabling technologies, following the findings of a report.

Mona Keijzer, secretary of state for economic affairs and climate policy, announced the decision in a letter sent to the House of Representatives on 11 June. She said that KETs such as quantum technology, artificial intelligence, photonics and chemical technologies were of special interest because they were widely applicable to innovation.

“These generate innovations that will change the way we live and work,” Keijzer wrote. “For instance, they will contribute to developing efficient and sustainable agriculture and carbon-neutral energy sources.”
