Call New Netherlands Polar Programme

23 April 2014

On May 1, 2014, the new call for the NWO New Netherlands Polar Programme (NNPP) will open.

The New Netherlands Polar Programme aims to encourage high-quality scientific research in and into the polar regions.

The next funding round of the NNPP invites researchers to apply with proposals that are relevant for the Dutch policy regarding the polar areas. This means that the chosen research subjects need to fit into the policy principles and objectives for Dutch polar policy as described in the policy framework "The Netherlands and the Polar regions 2011-2015". This grant round is similar to the policy driven grant round of 2012.

This grant round focuses on both Antarctica and the Arctic. Applications can be submitted from 1 May 2014. The deadline for applications is 8 July 2014. The funding decision will be in January 2015.
