About

The creative sector offers many opportunities for independent professionals and organisations at both a national and worldwide level. The international demand for designers and makers from the Netherlands is increasing. If you work in the sectors of architecture, design, digital culture, gaming, film or fashion, there are all kinds of opportunities to develop and grow your practice abroad.

Your first endeavours abroad will require research, support and funding. And expanding an existing international practice is also involves many demands. How do you develop an international strategy? How do you build a valuable network abroad? And what’s the best way to finance your project? Fortunately, there are various organisations, funding bodies and institutions that can help you with this. But where to start?

  • You have been invited to present your project or product at an international fair and are looking for financial support to meet your travel and accommodation costs.
  • You want to set up a project abroad but are still looking for suitable local cooperation partners abroad.
  • You want to sell or distribute your product abroad and are looking for information about suitable foreign markets.
  • You want to work abroad for an extended period and need advice about suitable residences or research places.
  • You want to invite a foreign guest to get acquainted with the Dutch creative sector and are looking for opportunities to set up and finance this exchange.

The International Support Index also aims to inform funding bodies and policymakers about available schemes for creative makers and organisations and thus draw attention to the sector’s possible needs and requirements.

Het Nieuwe Instituut developed the International Support Index in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate within the partnership Creative Holland.

Disclaimer

Although the International Support Index aims to provide the most extensive and clear overview of the financial and non-financial resources available to professionals in the creative sector, this guide is not comprehensive. If you want to inform us of a relevant scheme that isn’t yet on this website, please contact us at informatiepunt@hetnieuweinstituut.nl
