ZonMw selected two challenges for ‘proof of concept’ projects of Create2Solve. With Create2Solve, ZonMw makes funding available to research organisations and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) for the development of animal-free innovations within the program More Knowledge with Fewer Animals. This call for demand-driven innovations is now open for proposals. On 22 August, ZonMw will organise a webinar for any interested parties who want to know more about the call and the challenges.
