In 2017 a collaborative grant programme between Radboudumc and the University of Twente (TURBO programme) was launched. Hereby you are invited to apply for the fourth round of this programme.
Four collaborative TURBO grants of 80K€ each will be available. The aim of this pre-seed subsidy is to support a joint external grant application by researchers of the Radboudumc and the University of Twente. Typically, we would like to stimulate collaborative grant applications for the EU, NWO (e.g. cross over or TTW-grants), NWA routes, EFRO, Interreg, etc.
The grants can be spent freely, for example to hire (new) scientific personnel, purchase equipment, arrange networking events for the set-up of new consortia, or to realize participation of industrial parties/companies for a joint grant application.
All details about timelines, criteria, assessment procedure and focus of this year’s call (TOPFIT programme, including Covid-19) can be found in this document.
We are pleased to invite you to the TURBO MATCHMAKING EVENT on 11 May; an online event, organized for you to find the best collaboration partners. For more info and registration click here.
Deadline proposal submission: 6 July 2020.
