On Monday 27 May NWO will organise a workshop on the call ‘GROEN III, a circular agricultural system in the Netherlands’. This session takes place in Postillion in Bunnik, from 13.00 till 17.00 hours. Aim of the workshop is to match applications with the aims of the call and align proposals with other initiatives where possible (creating synergies, preventing overlap). You can find an application form below. Deadline for registration is 26 May 2019.

A consortium of researchers and private partners may apply for funding for research that helps bring about a radical change to the existing agricultural system. That is to be done through knowledge development and innovation that will assist migration to robust, future-proof food supply systems that are ecologically sustainable, support biodiversity and circularity, and contribute as little as possible to climate change, while also taking account of food safety and healthy diets.

Target group

A principal applicant submits the application on behalf of the project consortium. The consortium should consist of at least two knowledge institutions and at least two private and/or public partners, including at least one private co-financier. In addition, one or more additional private and/or (semi-)public partners may take part in the consortium.

Budget

It is possible to apply for NWO financing of maximally 1,100,000 euro. Matching by private and/or public partners is obligatory. The private and public partners in the project consortium together should contribute at least 20% of the project costs. Contributions can be in cash or in kind.

Timeline

The closing date for the submission of proposals is 4 July 2019, 14:00 hrs (CET). The decision by accredited board within NWO on the selection committee’s advice will be made in November 2019.
