Since the introduction of NWO's Open access policy in 2009, great progress has been made.


Challenge for Create2Solve can now be submitted!

ZonMw invites industry, research institutions and legislative bodies to formulate a challenge for Phase 0 of the call for proposals Create2Solve. In the initiative Create2Solve, the challenges from industry with animal-free innovations take centre stage. In the following phase, knowledge institutions and private partners will work on a project to come up with a solution fot the challenges.


NWO launches new NWA call about acceptance of animal-free models

How can we encourage the acceptance and implementation of existing animal-free models? This is the key question in the new call published by the Dutch Research Agenda (NWA). Almost 2.9 million euros is being made available in this call for research by broad consortia of researchers and civil society partners. ZonMw is realising this Call for proposals in collaboration with NWO.


78 researchers receive NWO-Vidi grant worth 800,000 euros

New planning for Veni rounds announced: uniformity across all domains

The new planning for the next Veni rounds has been finalised. In 2022, the planning for this NWO Talent Programme will be fully aligned, just as it was prior to the changes that took place last year as a result of the coronavirus crisis and hack at NWO. NWO also intends to introduce more uniformity in its procedures, which is a desire that has been expressed in the field for a long time. The mandatory preproposal phase will therefore apply to...
