The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) is accepting applications from researchers at Dutch universities and other Dutch knowledge institutions for three different funding opportunities related to the future of work, replication and transparency, and issues surrounding autism and psychosis, respectively.
One NWO grant will provide between € 400,000-500,000 in funding for research on learning communities—environments with an intersection of learning, work, and innovation—in the logistics sector. Applications should establish a plan to investigate how learning communities can be developed or modified to improve work-based learning and innovation. Applicant teams must include one university research group and one education institution; experts in organizational or behavioral science, logistics, and education are invited to contribute. Applications are due September 10, 2019.
A second grant is a pilot program supporting replication studies. The projects selected for funding will inform NWO on how to assess its requirements for methodology and transparency of research, and how to include replication research in research programs. Applicants may submit proposals for replication research of two types: 1) reproduction of analysis of existing data with the same research question and 2) replication with new data and the same research protocol. NWO will provide up to € 75,000 for the first type of study and € 150,000 for the second type. The deadline for applications is June 6, 2019.
The third funding opportunity will provide professors or postdoctoral researchers with up to € 350,000 over 5 years to study social reintegration of adolescents and adults with autism or psychosis. NWO requests applications for research on interventions in the areas of living, leisure activities, and perception of people with autism, schizophrenia, or psychosis. Applicants should use existing databases and information to inform their proposals. Applicants not affiliated with an NWO-recognized institution can apply as a partner with a researcher from an NWO-recognized institution. Full proposals are due June 6, 2019.
