Now open: call for proposals in the ZonMw/NWO Enabling Technologies Hotels programme with possibilities to get funding for (among others) the use of the GERMINATOR

Now open: call for proposals in the ZonMw/NWO Enabling Technologies Hotels programme with possibilities to get funding for (among others) the use of the GERMINATOR | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it

ZonMw and NWO have made funds available for the 4th call for projects within the ZonMw programme Enabling Technologies Hotels. The call was set up in collaboration with the Dutch Techcentre for Lifesciences (DTL).

Wilco Ligterink's insight:
If you are interested in doing high-througput germination assays, you can write a project for max 30 k€. Also many other technologies are available within this programme

Het plantje Xerophyta viscosa is niet kapot te krijgen: het kan jaren van extreme droogte overleven. Wageningse onderzoekers proberen die eigenschap ook in andere gewassen ‘aan te zetten’, om ze bestand te maken tegen droogte.
