About Startup in Residence Intergov

In the Startup in Residence Intergov programme, six government organisations work with startups to develop innovative and scalable solutions to societal issues. Twice a year, they publish a round of Startup in Residence Intergov challenges, which focus on specific societal issues. This Open Call is separate from these rounds and the regular programme, and instead of a specific issue, it focuses on a theme: Cybersecurity.


The government (Ministry of EZK) is looking for innovative solutions to governmental cyber security issues, such as AVR, crypto communication, phishing, data security. They have the ambition to start sustainable collaborations and are therefore looking for solutions that fit within the ambitions, tasks and responsibilities of the Ministry of EZK. They prefer solutions where the ministry is the buyer or user.


You have a chance to win an assignment of 25,000 euros, a follow-up assignment, coaching from the Startup in Residence Team and other experts and access to the network of EZK.


Deadline and more info

Deadline for proposal submission is 12 September at 5:00 pm.
