NWO Grant Rules

The NWO Grant Rules contain the conditions and obligations that apply to grants awarded by NWO. These are general (framework) rules. Additional terms and conditions may apply to specific grant programmes, which will be laid down in the call for proposals for these programmes.

The regulations apply to research that is based on NWO calls for proposals published from 1 May 2017 and onwards.

Opened a call before 1 May 2017?

The NWO Grant Rules 2017 replaces all previous regulations. However, all calls that were opened before 1 May 2017 fall under the previous Regulation on Granting and will therefore remain unchanged
