NWO Call for TOP Grant proposals and Research Program Ideas

Researchers can submit proposals for the new TOP grants at NWO Physical Sciences. The TOP grant at NWO Physical Sciences is open for curiosity driven research with an innovative, groundbreaking and challenging character. It enables a junior scientist to employ one PhD or postdoc, and it enables senior scientists to employ two or three PhDs or postdocs. Proposals must have a significant impact in one or more of the fields of astronomy, mathematics or computer science.

Researchers within the physical sciences can also submit ideas for new research programmes. The ideas should address radical innovative and ambitious research as well as on cooperation within the discipline or sub-discipline. There will be scope for monodisciplinary, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research.

The TOP Grants and Call for Ideas together substitute earlier funding for curiosity driven research, e.g. the Free Competition Scheme (Vrije competitie). Deadline for submissions is 21 March (for TOP Grant proposals) or 15 March (for Research Programme ideas).
