ICTRegie dissolved after 2010
ICTRegie, the national management body for ict-research and innovation, is likely to lose its mandate after 2010, and will therefore stop its work. A steering group, on behalf of two ministries and the research grant-giving NWO, have decided on this. The decision was made after disappointing results over de past 5 years and because of the lack of a new state budget for the management of ict. The employees are disappointed. ICTRegie was established by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, and NWO. 14 Innovation Platforms are connected to ICTRegie. It has 10 employees, all of them working at their office in the Hague.
