The Dutch Research Council (NWO) is an important science funding body in the Netherlands realising quality and innovation in science by investing in curiosity-driven research, research related to societal challenges and research infrastructure. It also conducts its own socially relevant research within nine NWO institutes: AMOLF, ARCNL, ASTRON, CWI, DIFFER, Nikhef, NIOZ, NSCR and SRON. These national centres of excellence are breeding grounds for scientific innovation and talent; hubs in national and international research and developers and/or enablers of large infrastructure or datasets.
In March 2022 The NWO governing board has decided to equip a 1 million euros emergency fund to support Ukrainian, Russian and Belarussian co-workers within NWO and to assist the NWO institutes in creating a safe environment for refugee Ukrainian researchers to continue their research. If you need any information about these emergency support measures at the NWO institutes, please contact Martine van Harderwijk at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the institute of your interest.
