Grant advice and support by IXA-UvA Grant Support Team

External funding is essential in order to be able to carry out scientific research. Funding sources, both national and international are under pressure and competition for the limited funding is increasing.

The IXA-UvA Grant Support Team, supports UvA staff seeking for research funding or when applying for research grants. The deployment of their expertise increases the chance of success. The IXA-UvA Grant Support site offers you an overview of various grant providers, their mode of operating and links to the relevant sites. This information is classified in national funding programmes and the European funding programme Horizon Europe.

If you intend to apply for a research grant and need further assistance, please contact one of our grant advisors.

Advice and Support (FGw, FNWI)

So-called 'Projectenbureaus' (Project Offices) advise and guide scientists on second and third funding projects (EU, NWO and other grants) during the entire project cycle. In addition to giving advice and providing information, the Project Office of the Faculty of Humanities provides support with questions about budgets, drawing up project budgets, contract negotiation with EU grants, taking care of periodic reports, preparing audit files and recruitment, appointment and deployment of employees on research projects.

Writing a Data Management Paragraph

While compiling an application for the funding of a new research project, you will come across questions relating to research data management. The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) is one of the funding organisations asking such questions during the application procedure. If you need help answering these questions, contact RDM Support and we will see what we can do for you.

Finance ICT Infrastructure

High Performance Computing and Networking (HPCN) facilities are IT infrastructure components designed to take teaching and research to the next level. The Faculty of Science manages the HPCN fund, which aims to provide the UvA with HPCN, thereby making a positive contribution to the e-Science infrastructure. Applications can be submitted for all matters that help to make generic HPCN facilities more readily available. For example:

  • System design.
  • Software development.
  • Hardware development.
  • Visualisation of research findings.
  • Seed-matching money for research projects with indirect government funding and contract research. This is achieved by honouring academic research proposals.

Application Period
Research proposals can be submitted once a year. The registration period is from 00.00hrs on 1 April until 23.59hrs on 31 May. Applications will be answered once a year, on 1 June.
