NWO and ZonMw want the scientific field to be involved in drawing up the Knowledge & Innovation Agendas (KIAs) of the topsectors. That is why they will ask researchers about scientific issues related to the societal challenges and missions prepared by the ministries.

These KIAs serve as the basis for the Knowledge Innovation Contract (KIC) with which NWO and ZonMw agree on how they will contribute to research that is relevant to the government's mission-driven innovation policy. NWO and ZonMw aim to offer a range of instruments for public-private partnerships that are clear and well-arranged.
