At the initiative of the Topteams of the High Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM), Chemistry, and Energy top sectors, NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences, together with the Materials Innovation Institute (M2i), organizes these materials calls to give an impulse to scientific materials research in the Netherlands.

Workshop Physics with Industry 2017

Companies can now propose their challenging problems for physicists to work on during the workshop Physics with Industry. Companies benefit from the thinking power of young researchers, the researchers experience how they can contribute to industry.

Partnership NWO-domein TTW-Rijk Zwaan

The call “Digital Phenotyping of plant-pathogen interactions” is available for research that enables accurate and quantitative phenotyping of pathogens or pests on diseased plant material through a combinational approach of hardware selection and development, 3D imaging and/or visualization of pathogens.


The HTSM2017 call is aimed at fostering excellent fundamental and applied research within the Topsector High Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM) to strengthen the international position of the Netherlands. In 2017, 5.6 million euros is available for research by research institutions with participation of companies.

Vici 2017

Vici is a funding instrument from the Talent Scheme. It gives senior researchers the opportunity to build up their own research group, often in anticipation of a tenured professorship. The research group must become structurally embedded in the research institution.

Industrial doctorates

The Industrial Doctorates pilot programme focuses on promoting collaborations between knowledge institutions and industry, especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Within the programme, a PhD student carries out work at both the knowledge institute and the participating company.

Biotechnology and Safety

The main goal of this programme is to build scientific knowledge concerning the risks and uncertainties associated with state-of-the art and future modern biotechnology developments and applications, as well as to gain knowledge on ways to minimise and control those risks.

Perspectief round 2016-2017
