ZonMw-procedure in a nutshell

Time to get started

If you have an idea that matches one of the ongoing calls for grant applications, you can submit it as a grant application. Applying for ZonMw funding involves several stages. Not every grant application goes through the same steps. We have tried to explain how to apply for funding as transparently as possible on the following pages.

We look forward to your application!

Working towards good health for all whilst leveraging knowledge. This is what we stand for. This is what ZonMw has been doing for decades. But we cannot do it alone; we need you to realise our objectives. 

ZonMw runs nearly 200 programmes covering a variety of topics, from COVID-19 to dementia, from Juiste Zorg op de Juiste Plek (‘the right care in the right place’) to a healthy living environment. Every year, we issue nearly 200 calls for grant applications. Check whether your idea matches one of the ongoing calls for grant applications.

Together we ensure that knowledge has a greater impact on improving health and wellbeing for everyone. Because we can only contribute to a world in which good health is attainable for all if we do it together.
