Wetenschapsagenda funds nineteen projects: three involve NHL Stenden


Nineteen consortia receive funding from the National Science Agenda (NWA) to work on scientific and societal breakthroughs. NHL Stenden is part of three consortia. The university of applied sciences is involved in a project focused on youth aid, a project focused on more sustainable healthcare and a project focused on cultural heritage combined with artificial intelligence (AI).

The awarded projects focus on issues from the society. The core of the projects consists of active collaboration between different research disciplines, different knowledge institutions and with public sectors and industry. In total, over 131 million euros are available for the consortia. Of this, over 113 million euro comes from the NWA. Almost 18 million euros is co-funded by the consortium partners.

Broad representation

The consortia have a broad representation of knowledge organisations and social partners: ranging from public parties such as museums, hospitals, universities and knowledge institutions from the Netherlands and abroad, to foundations, patient associations and other citizens' initiatives, municipalities, provinces and ministries. The business community is also widely represented.
