Mandatory co-financing?

With the Grant Programme for Architecture, the Creative Industries Fund NL supports projects that foster the quality and development of contemporary Dutch architecture. The programme focuses on outcomes within the Netherlands and is not part of the Internationalisation programme. Nevertheless, the scheme can offer short research and/or exchange opportunities abroad if this contributes to the realisation of work in the Netherlands.

Start-up grant
Within the Grant Programme for Architecture it is also possible to apply for a start-up grant (max. €7,500) to investigate a project’s possibilities.

Target group

Architects, urban planners, researchers, publishers and other professionals working in the areas of architecture, urban design, interior-, garden- and landscape architecture.

In addition to designers and spatial professionals, the scheme is also open to other parties, such as centres and institutions for architecture and debate.
