Share your ideas for the expected TTW call on new antibiotics

In September 2016, Edith Schippers, the Dutch Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport,  announced an investment of over 6 million Euros in a research programme to accelerate the development of new antibiotics and alternative therapies in the coming four years. The funding is intended for a new TTW (former STW) research programme and is associated with the new Netherlands Antibiotic Development Platform (NADP). Read the original Dutch Minister of Health invests millions in new antibiotics and alternatives.

Your project idea

More details on the TTW call are expected for early 2017. Immuno Valley, partner in NADP, facilitates setting up new collaborations between science and  business partners working on R&D of new antibiotics and alternative therapies. Therefore, the Immuno Valley team likes to gather your project ideas with the aim to discuss and facilitate matching with partners. In this way, you will have a head start in compiling your project application once the TTW call opens. As soon as we have more information on the call text and application requirements set forth by TTW, we will update you accordingly.
