Ambition | Knowledge sharing

Effective use of knowledge through co-design and co-creation

Besides having a scientific impact, research should also generate societal impact that contributes to the solving of societal issues. NWO wants to facilitate knowledge sharing by increasing the collaboration with users.

In doing so, NWO will further build upon the experience of various NWO units. During the next strategy period, public-private and public-public partnership in research will remain possible.

NWO will extend the programme Industrial Doctorates that is aimed at collaboration between knowledge institutions and companies. Analogous to this, the programme Societal Doctorates will be established for collaboration with public partners. Furthermore, a proof-of-concept grant will be established that will allow researchers to explore the societal potential of research previously funded by NWO.
