There are also schemes that support cultural activities outside of international cultural policy and in other departments. Some examples:
Agentschap NL (NL EVD Internationaal). The EVD runs programmes that support activities in the creative industries in particular. This mainly involves marketing research and introductions to the so-called emergent markets. http://www.evd.nl/home/evd/index.asp (scroll down for information in English)
- Agentschap NL (NL Innovatie). NL Innovatie helps entrepreneurs in the Netherlands with innovations, by providing funds, knowledge and contacts. One of the promising sectors in which the Netherlands could potentially stand out internationally is that of the creative industries (including the arts).
- Agentschap NL (NL Innovatie). NL Innovatie was implementing the Innovatie cultuuruitingen (innovation in cultural expressions) scheme, but cancelled the scheme due to major culture budget cuts in 2011. The knowledge programme Make love not art that was launched together with the funding scheme has also stopped.
