Authorisation scheme for project managers

Project managers can authorise others to carry out administrative actions for their project in ISAAC, NWO’s application and reporting system.

This includes the following actions:

  • Entering product data (output such as academic articles)
  • Uploading reports
  • Adding project documents
  • Adding project members


The possibility of authorising someone can be found in your ISAAC account, in a new tab called ‘Project access’. This is where you can access the authorisation form on which you can indicate to whom you are giving permission to perform these actions. After filling in and signing the form, you can upload it under the ‘Project forms’ tab in ISAAC.

The project manager is responsible for the actions performed by the authorised person. NWO is not liable for the incorrect use of the authorisation by third parties and has the right to withdraw the grant in case of improper use. 


If you have any questions about this new option, the please approach the relevant NWO programme officer or secretary of your project. They will be happy to answer your questions.
