Merian Fund

Merian Fund

The Merian Fund is a fund for international cooperation with (emerging) science countries and developing countries. The common thread within the Merian Fund is international research to promote the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals worldwide. WOTRO Science for Global Development is responsible for the implementation of the calls under the Merian Fund.

Countries and partners

Within the Merian Fund, NWO currently collaborates with Brazil, China, India, Indonesia and South Africa, because science has been growing enormously in these countries. Cooperation takes place within the framework of bilateral agreements at national level. The Merian Fund has seven partners in five countries: FAPESP (Brazil), NSFC and CAS (China), DST and DBT (India), RISTEKBRIN (Indonesia) and NRF (South Africa).
