Where does the money come from?
NWO’s science-wide funding program Research on Routes through Consortia (NWA-ORC) aims to facilitate the discovery of new insights from across a range of different research projects.
What is a consortium? (plural: consortia)
A consortium is a temporary association established by different organizations and research parties to carry out a particular research project. Many different universities, medical centers, and other organizations participate in these research projects, which allows for a great deal of knowledge and expertise to be brought to these research projects.
This temporary partnership brings scientific and social breakthroughs well within reach. The research project into hereditary brain diseases will receive €4.7 million in funding from the NWA-ORC funding program and €50,000 from us. The consortium research on skin diseases will receive €10 million in subsidies from the NWA-ORC funding program and €50,000 from Proefdiervrij.
