Funding opportunities NWO in response to the COVID-19 outbreak: 3 calls

update on the funding instruments NWO has launched in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.  

NWO has launched three calls in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Theses calls will have an ultra-short evaluation time, probably one or two weeks.  

  1. Fast incidental funding round for COVID-19 (‘first wave’)
  2. COVID-19 research programme to be launched shortly (‘second wave’)
  3. Fast-track data NWO research

1. Fast incidental funding round for COVID-19 (‘first wave’)

Only in Dutch, unfortunately. Please see the links and the two attachments:

Eligible project funding: 7.500 – 15.000 Euro

2. COVID-19 research programme to be launched shortly (‘second wave’)

ZonMW and NWO are currently developing an additional research programme in close consultation with the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and the field. This new programme will provide space for different types of research (action research, applied and fundamental research) on subjects similar to those in the accelerated incidental funding round, but which will also focus on the (broader social) consequences of the crisis and measures to be taken in the longer term.

No call has opened as of yet. Will open very soon.

3. Fast-track data NWO research

A pre-liminary English webpage by NWO is available as of yet (English translation follows). Links and attachements:

Subject: Gathering of real time data that can only be gathered during the COVID-19 crisis.
Deze call for proposals richt zich op onderzoek naar vraagstukken die zich tijdens de coronacrisis in de samenleving voordoen. Het gaat om onderzoek dat nú, dat wil zeggen tijdens het hoogtepunt van de crisis, moet worden uitgevoerd, en richt zich specifiek op onderzoek naar andere dan medische- en zorg gerelateerde vraagstukken. Hoogleraren, universitair (hoofd)docenten en andere onderzoekers met een vergelijkbare aanstelling bij een Nederlandse universiteit of een door NWO erkend onderzoeksinstituut kunnen een aanvraag indienen (zie voorwaarden paragraaf 3.1 call for proposals).

Deadline: Continuously open as long as there is funding.

Total NWO budget: 1,5 million Euro
