The world needs innovations. Innovations for solutions to societal challenges. As a company, you contribute to that. In a partnership, NWO doubles the budget contributed by your company. Curious about the possibilities? It starts with an introduction.
Public and private organizations can enter into a partnership with NWO to challenge science. The aim is to find innovative ideas and answers to a knowledge and/or development question. The instrument Demand for Partners encourages innovative partnerships. A collaboration with NWO will facilitate projects at the intersection of science and the application of research results. The partnerships contribute to innovation as well as societal and economic impact.
Topics and questions eligible for a partnership with NWO should fit the Knowledge and Innovation Agendas from the Dutch government's Mission-Driven Top Sectors and Innovation Policy. Organizations can register a KIC Partnership Initiative by September 30.
