With the SLIM subsidy, the Dutch government wants to encourage Dutch SMEs to set up lifelong learning for their staff. Annually, around € 48 million will be allocated for this subsidy. Every SME based in the Netherlands can submit the grant application. In addition to SMEs, larger companies can also participate. The maximum subsidy amount for SMEs is just under € 25,000. For collaborative ventures from multiple organizations (eg branch organizations), the subsidy can amount to as much as € 500,000.

Which projects are covered by the grant?

The subsidy can be used for an educational work environment. Consider setting up a company academy. This is already possible with the help of an online learning platform such as edloomio in which employees can increase their knowledge and skills. For example, they are actively involved in lifelong learning.

Be quick!

The SLIM subsidy can be applied for from 2 March to 31 March 2020.

It’s a constant struggle to deliver amazing learning and development to your colleagues. When you’re buried in work, and you hear the same questions over and over again, it can feel incredibly frustrating.

You may think, “How can I scale our learning and development? How can I help more colleagues in less time?”

Enter self-serve learning, create a knowledge base.

A knowledge base is a library of information about your products, processes or services. It helps colleagues find answers to solve problems on their own and — if you do it right — a good knowledge base can scale out your learning and development program while improving the overall learning experience.

Putting your knowledge base in your company’s drive (SharePoint for example) is almost the same as putting it in a closet in the maintenance room and sending everybody a one time email so they know it is there. It will be lost forever.

Edloomio solves this problem by making an easy to use knowledge base in the one place where all the learning magic happens! Quickly create articles, add attachments (downloads) and organize them in categories.

Want to see the knowledge base in action? Request a live demo and we’ll be happy to demonstrate the knowledge base feature of edloomio.
