BBE @ NWO
Pipeline
For 2012/2013 up till now NWO invested ~M€ 10 in BBE under
the top sector policy.
Investments in BBE will further increase, since:
Numbers on curiosity driven research (talent schemes and
response-mode research) will appear by the end of 2013.
The Fund New Chemical Innovations is still open.
Next ‘deadline’ for submitting projects: 24 September 2013
