Microplastics & Health – Expanding MOMENTUM (MOMENTUM 2.0)Deadline: o'clock
Please note: you can only submit when you have received an invitation
Who can apply
This call for proposals is on invitation. ZonMw invites the following applicants, who together lead the consortium, to submit an application on behalf of the consortium: Prof. J. (Juliette) Legler (Utrecht University), the project leader of the ongoing (More)MOMENTUM project, in collaboration with Prof. D. (Dick) Vethaak (Utrecht University), co-project leader of (More)MOMENTUM.
The aim of the current call is to put extra effort into specific goals that are already under study by the MOMENTUM consortium, or are a logical expansion of MOMENTUM. Microplastics & Health is a field of research wherein multidisciplinary collaboration and coordination are essential. This invitational call requests a proposal by the existing MOMENTUM consortium, which represents a large part of the research field in the Netherlands.
A parallel call invites researchers to provide proposals on specific research themes that are not addressed in the ongoing MOMENTUM initiative. The overarching goal of both calls for proposals is to develop knowledge and solutions and combine it in an overarching framework for health impact assessment.
This call invites the MOMENTUM consortium to provide a research proposal, as an extension and expansion of the ongoing public-private consortium. Target groups for the results are different stakeholders in the plastics chain, policy makers, but also the general public.
The Consortium will be additionally funded by ZonMw to a maximum of €3.650.000 (including VAT). MOMENTUM 2.0 can start directly when the proposal is awarded. However, the starting date is no later than December 31, 2023. The end date of MOMENTUM 2.0 is August 1st, 2025.
