Lector kringlooplandbouw

The four HAO institutions (Aeres University of Applied Sciences, Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences, Inholland or HAS University of Applied Sciences) can apply for funding for a "lector kringlooplandbouw".

Purpose

The Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV), the Taskforce for Applied Research SIA and the four agricultural universities of applied science jointly invest in the Practical Knowledge for Food and Green Program.

The research program aims to further develop the knowledge infrastructure in the green domain. It is also an opportunity for universities of applied sciences to further strengthen their position in the knowledge chain. The program is in line with the social tasks as written in the coalition agreement, the LNV vision and national policy agenda.

Who can apply

The applicant must be one of the four HAO institutions (Aeres University of Applied Sciences, Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences, Inholland or HAS University of Applied Sciences).

What to apply for

The maximum grant size that can be applied for is 400.000 euro. The maximum duration of the grant period is 48 months. Activity outside the duration of the project is not fundable. Funding is exclusively intended for lector activities as specified in the application.

When to apply

  • Applications retrieval moments: May 7, 2020; June 16, 2020.
  • Closure call: Tuesday, September 8, 2020, 14:00 CE(S)T.

Assessment

Criteria

All proposals are assessed by an assessment committee on the basis of two assessment criteria:

  2. Quality research activities

For further explanation, consult the manual "Praktijkkennis voor Voedsel en Groen: Lectoren kringlooplandbouw, indieningsronde september 2020" under section 4.3.

The applications are assessed by the independent evaluation committee on the basis of two evaluation criteria. Proposals that pass both criteria, after an initial written assessment and an interview, qualify for funding.

The assessment committee reports to the board of the Taskforce for Applied Research SIA and advices on the applications. Based on this advice, the board decides on granting an application or not. We aim to communicate this decision in writing within 13 weeks after retrieval or closure date.
