Reminder: Small projects for NWA routes 2020

September 14, 2020

NWO has opened a call for a single proposal containing three small projects (50 kEuro each) within the context of each NWA route. Within this call for proposals the route management of each NWA route can submit an application for funding of maximum three small projects. These projects can be aimed at an innovative idea or at knowledge utilisation of existing knowledge. 
The deadline for submitting proposals is 29 October 2020. 


Purpose
NWO is executing the NWA programme on behalf of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. NWO finds it important to support the 25 routes of the Dutch National Research Agenda. Within this call for proposals the route management of each NWA route can submit an application for funding of small projects. These projects can be aimed at an innovative idea or at knowledge utilisation of existing knowledge. These small projects should contribute to relevant subjects for the route and should enlarge the scientific and/or societal impact of the route. The route management should follow a transparent process to come to the selection of subprojects together with the relevant field. This process should be described in the application. New and unexpected connections should also be made, for example between disciplines, organisations and research fields. The assessment committee will assess the proposals with respect to these connections and with respect to the relevance for the route.
