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.
The 11th World Congress on Alternatives and the Use of Animal in the Life Sciences will explore the latest in 3Rs R&D and has a multidisciplinary programme covering more traditional themes as well as very latest issues and novel developments in the field of alternatives to animal testing in the life sciences.
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.
The intent of the call is to support networks to design and implement ways to support antimicrobial resistance (AMR) research considering at least one of the six strategic areas of the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA): Therapeutics, Diagnostics, Surveillance, Transmission, Environment and Interventions.
On 1 April 2021, NWO and ZonMw will become members of Europe PMC (PubMed Central), an open science platform that maintains a worldwide collection of scientific articles and other research output. This membership allows NWO and ZonMw funded researchers in the life sciences and medical sciences to globally share their publications via one central location. With this, they will also satisfy the requirements that NWO and ZonMw set for the research...
We are pleased to open this joint transnational research call about One Health interventions to prevent or reduce the development and transmission of antibiotic resistance. The call, has financial support from the European Commission, and include some 30 funding organisations from 21 JPIAMR member countries. The total estimated call budget is 24.9 million Euro.
On Monday 11 January 2021, the knowledge agenda Microplastics and Health was presented to the State Secretary for Infrastructure and Water Management, Stientje van Veldhoven. This knowledge agenda describes the most important knowledge gaps and calls for more research. ZonMw, together with other research funding bodies, has made an important first step in the right direction for further solution-focussed research.
On the 26th of November ZonMw (The Netherlands Organization for Health Research and Development) organizes, together with seven research consortia, an international conference presenting the lessons learned from research on core elements of evidence-based programs for children and youth.
