Don’t miss the deadline for the NWA-ORC!

The new round of the Dutch research agenda (NWA), research along routes by consortia (ORC) has started and the first deadline is the first of February. This step is registering your initiative, which is mandatory if you want to submit as main applicant in the call.

The NWA consists of 25 routes and 140 questions on topics formulated by the Dutch public. Consortia within the NWA ORC need to focus on one or more of the 140 cluster questions. These questions are as wide and the entire disciplines of science, so see if your topic can contribute to finding the answers of the Dutch public.

Each consortium needs to be (1) knowledge-chain-wide, (2) interdisciplinary, and (3) involve cooperation with civil society organisations, including industry. The goal is to create a societal and/or scientific breakthrough.

Some specifications:

Total funding available:               €106,3 million

3 Project size’s:                           500 K – ≤ 2M euros; 2M – ≤ 5M euros; 5M – ≤ 10M euros.

Co-funding:                                 10 % of total; in cash or in kind.

Maximum duration of project:    8 year
