The NWO Perspectief 2020-2021 has opened. Perspectief focuses on creating strong collaborations between researchers, companies and societal organisations, leading to technological innovations with potential economical and societal impact.
The objective of Perspectief is to contribute to the creation of economic opportunities for the Netherlands, presented by the four societal themes and the Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) in the mission-driven innovation policy of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy (EZK). The program should therefore fit within one or more of the five Knowledge and Innovation Agendas (KIAs). In addition, one or more KETs should play a role in each application.
The first deadline to register Program Initiatives is Thursday 22 October 2020, 14:00 CEST. This can be done through the registration form on the NWO website.
