Grants 2020

The table shows from top to bottom grants awarded in 2020, running grants and completed grants, awarded in earlier years, including their financial envelope, running period and –if not the NWO- institute- the name of the Nikhef partner university via which the grant is administrated.

In 2020 the Nikhef partnership has scored a higher amount of grant funds (in total 15,7 M€) than the previous year (2019: 12 M€). The largest grants are the Roadmap funding for the e-infrastructure of the LHC-experiments, KM3NeT and SKA (Nikhef share is almost 6 M€) and the NWO-ENW funding for the ATLAS programme.
