Subsidiedeadlines

Dekker grant
Type: Junior clinical scientist or Established investigator
Deadline: Tuesday 9 July 2019

The deadline for a new round of Dekker grants is near. The Dekker grant consists of multiple grants, for every phase of a scientific career in cardiovascular research. Now, application is open for the grants for Junior clinical scientist or Established investigator. The junior clinical scientist grant is meant for doctors who like to do cardiovascular research before they can start their specialization training. The Established investigator grant enables non-clinical researchers to extend their research group. For more information, click here or send an email to research@hartstichting.nl.


Call human measurement methods
Maximum funding: 500.000-1 mln.
Deadline: Sunday 1 September 2019

To reduce the amount of test animals, money is now being invested to find replacing human measuring models. Topsector Life Sciences & Health and Stichting Proefdiervrij have set aside 3.2 million for this project that enable researchers together with private parties to find efficient and reliable models that will substitute animal experiments. From the beginning of July, information about this grant can be found at the websites of Topsector Life Sciences & Health and of Samenwerkende GezondheidsFondsen.


Innovation funding
Maximum funding: € 25.000 (+5.000)
Deadline: Tuesday 3 September 2019

The Dutch Heart Foundation supports innovative ideas by doubling income from crowdfunding. The selected researchers that have an out-of-the box idea, can start a crowdfunding with help from the DHF to raise 25.000 euros, which will be doubled by the DHF up to 50.000 euros. When the goal of 50.000 is reached, researchers can apply for an extra work package, increasing the total amount to 60.000 euros. Two crowdfunding workshops will be organized for all researchers who are considering applying for this grant. You can submit your idea until September 3rd 2019.

Continous funding opportunities

*new* - Call for Working Groups

The Netherlands Heart Institute aims to establish working groups on issues that matter in cardiovascular science. The working groups aim to bring together the leading researchers on a specific topic to exchange information, build networks and write grant proposals.

Support by the Netherlands Heart Institute

  • The Netherlands Heart Institute supports each working group with a maximum of €5.000 per year. This can be used to organise meetings, invite foreign speakers, etc.
  • The Netherlands Heart Institute provides meeting rooms in the Holland Heart House.
  • We provide logistical support in organizing your events.
  • If you decide to write a grant proposal, one of our project managers will assist you.

Working Group activities
The working group meets at least 2 times a year in the Holland Heart House and organizes at least 1 public meeting a year in the Holland Heart House according to the format of the scientific sessions (themamiddagen) of the Netherlands Heart Institute or a session during the annual Translational Cardiovascular Research Meeting. The working group writes grant proposals if and when there is an appropriate call.

Evaluation
A working group gets support for 2 years after which we will evaluate if the working group has achieved its mission and goals.

Your proposal
Please send your proposal for a working group to info@heart-institute.nl. The proposal should include:

  • the topic of your working group
  • a preliminary list of members
  • proposed activities

The board of the Netherlands Heart Institute will select those proposals that fit with the objectives of the institute.
There is no deadline, you can submit your proposal anytime.

NWO: Rubicon

International research experience is often essential for building up one’s scientific career. Rubicon offers talented researchers who have completed their doctorates in the past year the chance to gain experience at a top research institution outside the Netherlands, as international research experience is likely to be an advantage at a later stage in the applicant's academic career.

3 deadlines per year
