Six consortia with top researchers from different Dutch universities have received a total of 113.8 million euros to carry out scientific research programmes in the coming years. The Minister for Education, Culture and Science (OCW), Ingrid van Engelshoven, made these funds available for research consortia that are among the best in the world in their field in carrying out groundbreaking research.

The research programmes awarded funding concern research into complex brain disorders at the molecular and cellular level, strengthening agricultural crops to tackle the challenges of sustainable food production, a radical new approach to mental diseases to realise a healthy society, measuring and explaining the effects of the environment on our health (the so-called "exposome"’), the development of a system for artificial intelligence (AI) in which people take centre stage (hybrid intelligence) and a new approach for investigating the development of disruptive technologies.
