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.
