Apply now for funding of your small international meeting!

4 June 2019

From 15 May 2019 onwards, the funding instrument ‘Scientific Meetings and Consultations Domain Science’ has been adjusted. You can now also apply for funding of international scientific meetings with no more than 200 participants. In addition, some of the conditions on granting have and the application form has been adjusted.

In November 2018, NWO Science has launched the new funding instrument ‘NWO Scientific Meetings and Consultations Domain Science’, that supports the exchange of research and ideas as well as the formation of research communities. Within this instrument, researchers could apply for a financial contribution to a national scientific meeting they are organising.

From 15 May 2019 onwards, NWO Domain Science has also made it possible to  apply for funding for international scientific meetings with no more than 200 participants. In addition, some other changes have been made to the instrument:

  • The application form has been adjusted and some questions clarified.
  • The Domain Science reserves the right only grant part of the amount requested, in case that a scientific meeting or consultation for which a contribution is requested only partially applies to the research area within the NWO Domain Science.
  • The Domain Science will randomly verify whether funded meetings or consultations have actually taken place. After a meeting or consultation has ended, NWO may request more information about the meeting from an applicant.

Applications can be submitted continuously. There are no deadlines. To submit your application, please visit our website: www.nwo.nl/wbo. Please make sure that you use the new application form from now on.
