New funding instrument of the NWO Domain Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH)


During the course of 2018, NWO will implement a simplified set of funding instruments in all domains. From 1 August 2018 onwards, researchers will be able to submit proposals for the first calls that have been published according to this new model. Within the open competition there will be a single domain-wide instrument for curiosity-driven fundamental research: open competition aimed at large and small projects. With this new system, the NWO executive board intends to create greater clarity in the research funding.

The text for the call for proposals and the application form for this new funding instrument will become available during the course of 2018 via the NWO website.
