ZonMw Veni round: Deadline submission full proposal postponed

For various reasons, we have been forced to postpone two deadlines for the current Veni round by one month. This concerns the deadline for informing the ZonMw applicants about the intended decision concerning their Veni pre-proposals and the deadline for submitting a full proposal.

Supporting the most daring and innovative research

Ground-breaking, independent research yields pioneering innovation in science, radically new ideas about health, and challenging perspectives on the health care of the future. ZonMw has set up a variety of programmes that support the most daring and innovative research by bringing together top talents, forging interdisciplinary collaborations between skilled groups, and facilitating the necessary research infrastructure. 

It is also essential that the academic pursuit of science constantly renews itself. With programmes such as More Knowledge with Fewer Animals, Fostering Responsible Research Practices, and Replication Studies, ZonMw contributes to reflection on the way science itself works.

How do we transform the scientific system

What are the most important and interesting new developments in the area of research integrity, responsible research practices, reproduction and replication? Annelein Stax and Guillaume Macor were there to hear how funding agencies together with institutes, researchers and journals, can contribute to this transformation. They made a series of vlogs to share the results.
