NWO division


NWO encourages excellent research in the NWO Domain Science (ENW). Various funding instruments are available to achieve this.

The NWO domain Science (ENW) comprises seven disciplines: Astronomy, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Life Sciences, Mathematics and Physics.

Within NWO, the Domain Science realises the funding of research via, among others, the following strategic lines:

Applying for funding

It is currently possible to apply for funding via the open calls of the following scientific fields (former NWO units):

The NWO Domain Science Board will take decisions regarding this subject.

Domain Science advisory structure

The NWO Domain Science has appointed seven disciplinary advisory committees to facilitate an effective collaboration between the board, the office and 'the field'. The disciplinary advisory committees have been given the name 'round tables' and are made up of researchers. With the establishment of the round tables the research field has been organised in such a way that it can advise the board within the new NWO.
