Our funding instruments

On 1 January 2017, NWO will adopt a new organisation structure. Current funding instruments will remain essentially unchanged until a decision about any change is taken. NWO will announce this change at least six months in advance. 2017 will be a transition year and the new funding instruments will become effective no later than 1 January 2018.
