From 22 March onwards, NWO is restarting their funding activities. Some deadlines of calls will be moved. Get acquainted with the new deadlines when you are working on a call or if you are part of an evaluation process.
NWO has taken into account all 160 running and 50/60 new initiatives of calls in the past week to restart the system of funding calls and evaluations. The general rule is:
- All calls with a deadline before 27 May will be postponed with +/- 5 weeks
- All calls with a deadline after 27 May will keep there existing deadline.
There are exceptions to this rule, which are depended on (1) if NWO foresees delays when having to re-schedule evaluation committee meetings, or (2) when calls need to have a close deadline due to for instance: international collaboration. Therefore, it could mean you do have an extension of your deadline even after 27 May or you could have less extension than 5 weeks.
How to find new deadlines
NWO is working hard to get their website up to date with new deadlines next week and will also publish a call planning in this week. Do keep in mind, within the call texts themselves, deadlines are not updated.
