Europe's Hub for R&D Innovation

Fueled by world-class research institutes, supportive R&D tax credits and a number of strategic partnerships between science, industry and government, the Netherlands is a hub for R&D innovation.

In fact, as the European R&D location of major companies like Philips, IBM, Mars, SABIC, Huawei and Unilever, Holland has the 2nd highest number of patent applications per million inhabitants in Europe.

The Netherlands’ unrivaled technology infrastructure, highly educated, English-speaking workforce and accessible government—with availability of tax incentives to promote corporate R&D and innovation—provide companies with the knowledge and resources they need to turn innovation into bottom-line results.
