The Netherlands - leading the way in mobility innovations

Small, but densely populated. An economy that for centuries has thrived on trade and logistics. With almost 18 million people, the Netherlands ranks highest in the world of connectivity and integration of digital technology.


Home to leading knowledge institutions and internationally renowned corporations in the field of mobility, technology and energy. With its investment climate open to innovation, change and collaboration, the Netherlands are a haven for new economy companies and disrupting start-ups.

The Dutch ‘just do it’. Innovative mobility, sustainability and safety are high on the agenda. As a means to face future challenges in terms of climate change, accessibility of cities, social inclusion and strength of our economy. Global challenges we choose to face with Dutch solutions.

The Netherlands has been investing substantially in mobility solutions for years and will continue to do so in the years to come. Strong commitment to assist in developing innovative mobility solutions is fueled by both an ambition to remain a world leader in ITS and CAD solutions, as well as the awareness that current and future mobility issues need to be addressed through innovative solutions that capitalize on the possibilities of IT in traffic, transport and mobility services.

The Dutch commitment in this field is demonstrated nationally in various investment programs and test projects, but also internationally by for instance the Declaration of Amsterdam 2016 which came about under the Dutch EU presidency in 2016.
