30 January 2018 – NWO to simplify its research funding
With effect from 1 August 2018, NWO will implement a large-scale simplification. Then NWO will reduce all of its funding instruments to a handful of ‘main forms’. This simplification is a technical intervention that will not in any other way influence on the content of the research programmes. What was possible with the old instruments will still be possible after 1 August. The difference will be that the entire package of instruments will be far clearer.
26 January 2018 – Eight projects receive funding for collaborations between scientists and museums with the application of data science
The Netherlands Institute for Conservation, Art and Science (NICAS) brings together the various disciplines of art history and conservation with science. For this call of proposals from NICAS, with a focus on data science, NWO has awarded funding to four research projects and four seed money proposals.
19 January 2018 – NWO gives sustainable materials research a nine million euro boost
The funding from the NWO Materials for Sustainability programme (Mat4Sus) will be used to launch fifteen new research projects. Five of these involve public-private consortia, in which companies assist with the research work. These consortia are working on solar cells that can be moulded onto cars, and powerful batteries that won’t explode. They are also investigating modified molecules that could be used in batteries, heat storage in salt, and efficient ways to compress and purify hydrogen. The other ten projects, two of which involve private sector participation, focus on long-term, fundamental research.
15 January 2018 – 21 young research talents off to foreign top institutes thanks to Rubicon
21 researchers who have recently received their PhDs can do their research at foreign research institutes thanks to a Rubicon grant from NWO. The Rubicon programme gives young, highly promising researchers the opportunity to gain international research experience.
18 December 2017 – NWO Physics Valorisation Prize 2017 is for VU researchers Erwin Peterman and Gijs Wuite
The NWO Physics Valorisation Prize 2017 goes to Prof. Erwin Peterman and Prof. Gijs Wuite, both of whom are top researchers at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. They have been awarded the prize, both as individual scientists and as a duo, for their individual efforts and their successful collaboration to valorise the fundamental knowledge and expertise that stem from their research in the field of single-molecule biophysics. The award ceremony will take place on 23 January 2018 during the annual national physics conference Physics@Veldhoven.
15 December 2017 – Three top women scientists receive an appointment at an NWO institute
NWO has awarded three talented female scientists a WISE grant. Dr Larissa Juschkin has received an appointment at the Advanced Research Centre for Nanolithography ARCNL, Dr Kristina Ganzinger at the research institute for functional, complex matter AMOLF, and Dr Aurora Simionescu at the Netherlands Institute for Space Research SRON. With the WISE programme, NWO wants to encourage the recruitment and promotion of top women researchers at its own institutes.
14 December 2017 – Descartes-Huygens Prize to two nanoscientists
The Dutch chemist Daniël Vanmaekelbergh and the French physicist Manuel Bibes will receive the Descartes-Huygens Prize 2017. That was announced today by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), the Embassy of France in the Netherlands and the Académie des Sciences. The two nanoscientists have been awarded the prize for their outstanding research and their contribution to Franco-Dutch relations.
14 December 2017 – DFG Announces Winners of 2018 Leibniz Prizes
The latest recipients of Germany’s most prestigious research funding prize have been announced. In Bonn today, the Joint Committee of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) selected eleven researchers, four women and seven men, to receive the 2018 Leibniz Prize. The recipients of the prize were chosen by the selection committee from 136 nominees. Three of the eleven prizewinners are from the humanities and social sciences, three from the life sciences, another three from the natural sciences, and two from the engineering sciences. Nine of the prizewinners will receive €2.5 million each, while two researchers will share one prize, each receiving €1.25 million. The recipients can use these funds for their research work in any way they wish, without bureaucratic obstacles, for up to seven years. The awards ceremony for the 2018 Leibniz Prizes will be held on 19 March in Berlin.
