NWO and the Grants Office of the University of Twente will host a grants day for researchers who are interested to know more about NWO funding instruments. The main target group is early and mid-career researchers, obviously not excluding PhD researchers and others who are interested to know more about NWO and NWO funding instruments. The programme consists of four separate sessions, allowing you to join all four sessions or to join sessions that are of particular interest to you. 

We aim to familiarize you with NWO’s vision/ambition and funding instruments in order to be able to understand what is needed for a competitive application. During the sessions you will have the chance to ask questions that your are particularly want an answer to. 

The sessions are:

  1. The Dutch funding landscape, and NWO's vision, ambition, and funding lines
