NWO has various funding instruments for physics research. Until 2017, a part of this was allocated by the Foundation FOM. As of 1 January 2017, FOM has become part of the NWO Domain Science. Please find an overview of all the NWO instruments here. Each instrument has specific objectives and its own application, assessment and selection procedure.
