Letters of intent

Investment Grant NWO Large 2019-2020

Prior to submitting an application, lead applicants had to announce their initiative by submitting a Letter of intent in ISAAC. The deadline for submitting a Letter of intent expired by 14.00 CET on 3 December 2019. The obligation to submit and publish a letter of intent has been introduced to promote cooperation between initiatives.

A Letter of intent consists of:

  • a brief explanation of the investment topic;
  • an indication of the group of researchers involved;
  • if applicable, a statement as to whether there is alignment with a facility or cluster on the National Roadmap for LargeScale Research Facilities; if the applicant can see no alignment with the Roadmap, this should be stated explicitly;
  • the lead applicant;
  • the contact details.

The Call for proposals announces that NWO will place submitted Letters of Intent on the Investment Grant NWO Large programme page, and that official secretaries should take account of the fact that the information they are providing in the form is therefore public information.
