The NWO executive board has awarded funding to ten proposals in the National Roadmap 2017/2018 for Large-Scale Scientific Infrastructure (read more here). The total amount granted is 138 million euros. Yesterday the Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science, Ingrid van Engelshoven, presented the ten roadmap certificates at Utrecht Science Park. Funds for the National Roadmap Large-Scale Scientific Infrastructure make it possible to build or modernise top research facilities with an international allure.

Among the projects who were awarded funding under the Roadmap 2017/2018, there is “BSL3: safe solutions for research into global threats by infectious diseases” presented by Erasmus MC, a VetBioNet partner. You can read more about all the selected projects here.
