NWO invites proposals from researchers within the chemical sciences for TOP-PUNT grants. Deadline for submitting proposals is September 16, 2014. Via the 'Sectorplan natuur- en scheikunde' extra budget is available for scientific research in chemistry. Chemical Sciences finances from this budget TOP-PUNT grants. For the round 2014-2015, approximately € 6 - 8 million is available.
TOP-PUNT grants are for small teams of full professors appointed at chemical centers of excellence. They can use the grant to jointly set up, strengthen or renew challenging and innovative lines of research. The grants should boost the research in the chemical centers of excellence. The chemical centers of excellence have been established on recommendation of the 'Commissie Breimer'. Grants are up to € 2,000,000.
