Open Technology Programme (OTP) closed till 2022

The OTP programme of the NWO-TTW domain has closed early this year. The grant ceiling for the period up to 31 December 2021 has been reached. This means that if you have an OTP in preparation and were planning to submit before the end of the year, you will need to wait until the first of January of 2022 before you can submit again to this instrument. Keep in mind that you will need to transfer your current proposal to the new 2022 templates and application forms (out in November). Also, be aware of the changes in the new 2022 call rules and regulations that affect your proposal.
