Four projects from Utrecht have received funding from the so-called National Science Agenda: Research on Routes by Consortia (Nationale Wetenschapsagenda: Onderzoek op Routes door Consortia, NWA-ORC). The projects involve a total of 9,25 million euro. Utrecht University is also one of the academic partners for a fifth project
The NWA-ORC scheme is awarding a total of 61 million euros to 17 research consortia. A special feature of this new funding is that it is used for collaborations between knowledge institutions and social partners, allowing them to examine urgent issues together.
