New awards NWO and ZonMw accelerated research programmes into corona

14 April 2020

On the 14th of April, NWO announced the last awards of the call “Corona: fast-track data”. The first awards were announced last Friday.

The call "fast-track data" was initiated by NWO Domains Science, Social Sciences and Humanities, and Applied and Engineering Sciences to gather data that can only be collected now, during the COVID-19 crisis, and for issues that occur in society during the current crisis. The research funded will lead to important, unique sets of data.

The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMw) also announced today which eight projects with a direct effect on the progress of the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and public health can start shortly. This is the first outcome of the commission from the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport to ZonMw to fund urgent research with a direct impact on the current corona pandemic.
