About the Organization

The Netherlands Enterprise Agency supports entrepreneurs, NGOs, knowledge institutes and organisations. We aim to facilitate entrepreneurship, improve collaborations, strengthen positions and help realise national and international ambitions with funding, networking, know-how and compliance with laws and regulations.

We are a government agency which operates under the auspices of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. Its activities are commissioned by the various Dutch ministries and the European Union.

About the Grant

FBK helps Dutch entrepreneurs that want to:

  • research the root causes of child labour in their production chains;
  • take actions to prevent child labour at a local level;
  • take measures to prevent child labour in their businesses.

We can support your project with a subsidy and a knowledge project. We inform you, advise you, and share knowledge.


You may apply for a subsidy for the following types of projects:

  • local impact research: in-depth research into child labour on-site and in the industry;
  • on-site activities to end child labour in combination with due diligence measures in your industry.

You may apply for a subsidy for projects A and B.

You may apply for project B after you have implemented project A. In this case, we will check if the research results meet the criteria set out in the Government Gazette.


FBK is a five-year subsidy programme (2018 – 2022) with several opportunities to apply. In 2021, the budget is 5.5 million euros, divided into 2 openings.

You may apply for a subsidy of no more than €475,000 for each project, representing a maximum of 70% of the total project costs. FBK will subsidise at least 11 projects each year.


  • You apply for a subsidy for activities aimed at combatting child labour.
  • You carry out these activities in a partnership within 4 years.
  • FBK accepts applications for countries on the List of recipients of Official Development Assistance (pdf).
  • You can find all the details of the FBK administrative rules and our project criteria in the unofficial translation of the Government Gazette.
  • Your project follows the international guidelines for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).


One of the conditions to apply is that your company finds partners. Your company must have partners with:

  • other companies in the same sector;
  • other organisations, such as NGOs or sector organisations;
  • local parties, such as local authorities, schools, children and parents.

Your partnership consists of at least:

  • 1 Dutch company
  • 1 NGO, and
  • 1 local company.

If you do not have a partnership with a local company yet, please explain in the project proposal how you will include a local company in your project. Only a Dutch company or NGO can apply for a subsidy.
