Research & results

Research leads to results

Thousands of scientists can conduct their research thanks to financial support from NWO. They work in the Netherlands, but also at foreign institutes, research centres and universities. NWO awards grants for top research and research equipment. Together with the coordination of research programmes this allocation of funding is one of NWO's most important tasks. Research leads to results. The publication of these results and the financial reports enable NWO to give account for the financial resources it receives.

Cases

What do scientists want to find out in their research projects? And why is that so interesting? In the case studies, researchers explain the ins and outs of their work.
