Researcher Project for Scientific Renewal (Thematic Priority Call)

4 March 2024: We have removed the technical limit for the maximum amount you can seek in funding in the application form. This was done so that we are able to accept applications for the topic "The National Election Study". You must ensure that you stay within the support limits for the theme you choose. If you have created an application for the topic "The National Election Study", you must create a new application to avoid the old technical limit.

We will have new portfolios from 1 January 2024. The thematic areas in our calls reflect the new portfolios. You will therefore find that some research topics lie under new thematic areas. Under this call, this applies in particular to the following: 

  • Research topic previously under thematic area Oceans: 
    • Marine is located under the thematic area Climate and environment 
    • Aquaculture is under the thematic area Food and bioresources 
  • The research topic Petroleum is under the thematic area Energy and transport 
  • The research topic Culture (formerly under Welfare, culture and society) is located under Welfare and education 
  • The research topic Polar (previously under Climate and polar) is located under the thematic area Climate and environment 

We reserve the right to make changes to the call for proposals after we have received the letter of allocation for 2024.
