The Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) / the Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMw) have granted three joint projects. All three projects aim to develop innovative minimally invasive technique for a sustainable healthcare system.
The aim of the joint programme between DBT and NWO/ZonMw is to stimulate sustainable Indian-Dutch research collaborations by funding joint research projects with the explicit goal to contribute to a more sustainable healthcare either in India or in The Netherlands.
The Indian-Dutch consortia are jointly funded by DBT and NWO / ZonMw. All projects involve (pre)clinical research with the objective to start phase I/II trial (within the term of the project or directly following the project).
