A grant application can be submitted to ZonMw only after a given funding round has been announced and officially opened.
Grant calls are only available on the dutch website for now, they will be available on the English website soon.
Each programme employs its own specific application and assessment procedure, which is explained in the call for proposals in the opened funding round. The steps below describe the standard procedure; the programme within which you are applying may differ from this procedure to some degree.
It varies, depending on the programme and the funding round. The specific time frames are given in the text of the programme description or funding round.
Generally, however, the procedure takes between 6 and 10 months. This includes the time applicants will need to formulate their project proposal, work up their detailed grant application, and respond to its assessment. The time that ZonMw needs for the assessment of the project proposal and the grant application is about half of the time needed by the procedure as a whole.
