The backbone of the Dutch genomics community is formed by the 16 NGI Genomics Centres – this is where the work is done.
NGI has recently awarded four Booster Grants for public-private partnerships (PPPs) in the Life Sciences.
The Horizon programme was set up as a breeding ground for talented researchers active in genomics and/or bioinformatics.
NGI participates in a number of international partnerships and takes a leading role in several of them.
LifeSciences@work brings start-up support activities, former- and future participants and experts community together.
This publication provides a new and expanded overview of start-ups in Dutch life sciences.
The annual €1 million Valorisation Award for the Genomics Centre that has performed best according to the annual theme.
www.allesoverDNA.nl website answers a range of questions concerning DNA: What is DNA? What are genes? What is DNA sequencing? It is a source of information on research into DNA, heredity and genes of people, animals, plants and microorganisms.
The DNA Labs on the Road establish a bridge between education and the latest scientific insights. In the six labs, pupils carry out practical experiments using advanced technologies that are not available at schools.
Can we apply genomics to address a tangible problem in developing countries? That is the starting point of the Imagine... project, a Kluyver Centre initiative.
Research / Genomics Centres
Sixteen NGI Genomics Centres are responsible for breakthroughs in the fields of health,
agro-food, sustainability, enabling technologies, safety and society.
The Genomics Centres are consortia of universities, research institutes, industry and societal organisations. They work on visionary, yet targeted programmes that cover the complete chain from fundamental science to product development to ensure optimal benefits for consumers, patients and companies.
