Subsidieregeling RIG in een maand al overtekend

11 mrt 2019

Financiering

Er worden massaal aanvragen gedaan voor de subsidieregeling RIG, de Regionale Investeringssteun Groningen. Op 1 februari werd de vijfde ronde van deze regeling geopend en nu, ruim een maand later, is het budget al meer dan twee keer overtekend. Voor investeringen van industriële bedrijven in de Eemsdelta en op het Zernike Science Park is 12 miljoen euro aan subsidie beschikbaar. Ondanks de overtekening kunnen bedrijven zich nog steeds aanmelden met nieuwe plannen.

De doelen van de RIG zijn meer werkgelegenheid, versterking van het vestigingsklimaat voor industriële bedrijven, innovatie en vergroening van de industrie. De afgelopen vier jaar leverde de RIG 350 directe en ongeveer 520 indirecte banen op. Met name bedrijven uit het midden en klein bedrijf profiteren van de regeling. Mede dankzij de RIG hebben zich zes nieuwe bedrijven in de regio gevestigd. Bedrijven investeerden dankzij de regeling tot op heden in totaal 154 miljoen euro in de regio.

Resultaten

Op www.rigscoorttop.nl staat een monitor met de concrete resultaten van de regeling. Daarop staat  welke bedrijven het beste scoren. Voorbeelden hiervan zijn het bedrijf Avantium op het chemiepark Delfzijl en Purified Metal Company, dat vervuild schroot gaat verwerken tot hernieuwbare grondstoffen. Deze bedrijven dragen bij aan een groene en circulaire economie.
