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.

Prevention of unhealthy weight gain and obesity during crucial phases throughout the lifespan (PREPHOBES)

Topics

This joint transnational call intends to fund dedicated, top-class transnational research consortia to provide insights in innovative strategies to prevent or reduce overweight and obesity in defined target populations based on certain life stages.

The research to be funded within this call should have a holistic, multi-disciplinary and solution orientated approach and will focus on one or more crucial phase(s) throughout the lifespan such as transition periods (for example from prenatal to postnatal phase/infancy, pre-school to school age, adolescence to early adulthood) or critical life events (for example moving, marriage, period in between pregnancies, diagnosis of a chronic disease, recovering from disease, retirement, migration). To increase the impact of the research and facilitate its later use in future policies on lifestyle interventions and public health, this call strongly encourages the active integration of stakeholders (e.g. patient and/or consumer organisations) or citizen science approaches. These partners should be engaged in the research process from conception of the study to dissemination and implementation.
