ZonMw and NWO have made funds available for the 5th call for projects within the ZonMw programme Enabling Technologies Hotels. This programme contributes to the aims of the Topsectors Life Sciences and Health (LSH), Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials.


This 5th call of the ETH programme aims to:

  • Facilitate the dissemination of unique technological expertise in the Netherlands to other research groups/institutions/companies that have not worked with that technology before;
  • To stimulate novel interactions among research groups and Technology Hotels and thereby contribute to the advancement of the used technology;
  • To encourage the use of advanced life sciences technologies in public-private partnerships;
  • Propagate the use of data stewardship and data integration principles, methods and standards in advanced life sciences research projects.

Aim of the call

The goal of this call is to stimulate active collaboration between researchers with and without access to high-end technologies. The Technology Hotel concept entails that researchers who do not have access to high-end technologies (the guests), can obtain access to these technologies and the connected expertise and infrastructure via a service-oriented facility (the Hotel) with the ambition of realizing active follow-up collaboration.

What can be applied

Support can be requested to access the following high-end technology areas:

  1. Bioinformatics, Computational and Systems Biology
  2. Genomics (incl. Next Generation Sequencing approaches)
  3. Proteomics & Structural Biology
  4. Metabolomics
  5. Bioimaging & Phenotyping (incl. Advanced Microscopy and Medical Imaging)



  • The projects need to be carried out in the Netherlands within the domains of the Topsectors LSH, Agri & Food or Horticulture & Starting Materials.
  • The Hotel access has to be used to generate and integrate novel data for the groups concerned.
  • All applications must be in English.
  • Data should be published in an open access manner where possible.
  • Per main applicant only 1 Hotel project can be requested.

Main applicant is the Hotel Guest in a role of the project leader: a scientist (PhD required) from a Dutch public research organization.


The maximum ZonMw subsidy that can be requested is €30,000. The Hotel project has a fixed duration of 12 months. A company (co-applicant, not the Hotel) has to cofund minimally 10% of the requested ZonMw subsidy in cash and or in kind.

Submitting application

You can submit your proposal until October 1st 2019, 14.00h, through ProjectNet.
