The 4TU.Federation (TU Delft, TU/e, UT and WU) has issued a Call for proposals for the 4TU research programmes 2018-2021. The overarching theme of the programmes is ‘High tech for a sustainable future’.
Who can apply?
The application is open for consortia of 4TU researchers, representing at least three, and preferably four, TUs. Researchers that are part of an existing 4TU research centre may also submit an application as (part of) a consortium. External, non-4TU researchers are not eligible for funding.
Consortia can apply for funding of a programme that covers at least one of the following research themes:
- High tech to feed the world
- Sensing Science and Technology
- Health & Vitality
- Advanced Materials
- Energy Conversion & Storage.
The programme must also align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the EU’s Societal Challenges and Key Enabling Technologies.
The programme budget can be between €500k and €1000k per year, including a joint cash contribution from the participating faculties (for Wageningen University: science groups) of at least 25% of the programme budget. This means that programmes can receive a maximum annual contribution of €750k from the 4TU.Federation, over a four-year period.
