Call for proposals TURBO program


Following the partnership agreement between the University of Twente and Radboudumc, detailed below the elaboration of the Twente University RadBoudumc Opportunities (TURBO) program.

Annually, the University of Twente and Radboudumc will jointly supply four TURBO grants, in two rounds. These project-based grants of 80K€ each will be awarded to four (preferentially) new collaborations between researchers from the University of Twente and Radboudumc.

The aim of the TURBO collaboration projects is to facilitate research between the institutes that will increase the possibility of collectively obtaining external funding. The program will start in 2017. This year, there will be one round for four grants to kick-start this initiative.

The grants (80K€ each) can be spend 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 as done for the "STW perspectief".
