NWO publishes integral call planning

16 July 2020

The pausing and restarting of the operational process has caused many shifts in the timetables of funding instruments. NWO has decided to create an overview of these changes. Today, NWO therefore publishes the first part of the integral call planning in which the upcoming deadlines for pre-proposals and full proposals until the end of June 2021 are listed.

Please note:

  • This overview is not yet complete. New instruments will be added as soon as possible once their time frame has been established.
  • Only the ZonMw instruments belonging to the Talent Scheme (Veni, Vidi, Vici), Rubicon and the Dutch Research Agenda call-for-proposals are included in this overview. 
  • More information about instruments can be found on the relevant grant page. 

  • No rights may be derived from this overview.
