About us

Grant Support team

External funding is essential in order to be able to carry out scientific research. Funding sources, both national and international are under pressure and competition for the limited funding is increasing.

The Grant Support Team, part of IXA, supports UvA and HvA staff seeking for research funding or when applying for research grants. The deployment of their expertise increases the chance of success. The Grant Support site offers you an overview of various grant providers, their mode of operating and links to the relevant sites. This information is classified in national funding programmes  and the European funding programme Horizon 2020.

If you intend to apply for a research grant and need further assistance, please contact one of our grant support advisors, see their main areas of activity:

Consortium and Research Collaboration Agreements

In order to facilitate researchers applying for research grants, we additionally offer the support of our legal team. They are more than willing to assist researchers  with Consortium and Research Collaboration Agreements.

Societal Impact and Utilisation

In many grant applications you have to provide input on societal impact and utilisation. These are for instance the NWO personal grants of the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (VENI, VIDI, VICI), EU Innovative Training Networks (ITN), but also in the Research and Innovation projects within the Horizon 2020 Societal Challenges.

Societal impact and utilisation paragraphs describe how your research results will benefit society or how they can be useful for companies or organisations (like museums, charities, governments) and how you will collaborate with them to transfer your knowledge. 

The Grant Support Team collaborates with the IXA business developers to help you with those paragraphs.

Other services

Valorisation, starting your own company,  protecting IP, patent applications & licensing, research & consortium agreements, legal support, building a business case...

IXA is the new collaborative entity formed by the TTOs (Technology Transfer Offices) of UvA-HvA, AMC and VU-VUmc.
