Seven collaborative projects with researchers in Ukraine selected by the Dutch Research Council (NWO)

The NWO has partnered with The National Research Foundation of Ukraine (NRFU) and enabled researchers in Ukraine to continue their scientific careers under terrible circumstances of the raging war. The first seven allocations have now been announced, totalling around 140,000 euros.

The aim of NWO Hop-On Call for Proposals for Researchers Based in Ukraine: NWO-NRFU Partnership Initiative 2023 is to stimulate online participation of qualified researchers in Ukraine in ongoing NWO projects and to extend their professional network in the Dutch research community. The maximum budget for this call has been reached, and no new applications can be made.
