The Horizon Valorisation Project Grant is available for researchers that have already been awarded a Horizon Breakthrough project or Horizon project to further support valorisation of their research results.
The grant may be used to validate research, or perform pre-clinical research or (further) clinical research to improve the valorisation potential of the research as performed in the Horizon Breakthrough project or Horizon project.
What can be applied for
- The maximum grant per Horizon Valorisation project is EUR 50,000. Applications can include a request for salary, consumables, the usage of equipment and costs related to IP (support and external advice).
- The duration of a Horizon Valorisation project is at most one year. Project leaders will have to present a final report of the Horizon Valorisation Project Grant.
The proposals may be submitted throughout the year, but within two years after the ending of the corresponding Horizon Breakthrough project or Horizon project. The proposals may only be submitted through the ZonMw ProjectNet system for electronic submission of applications. Application forms can be downloaded from ZonMw website.
Before official submission, the applicant should send the proposal to the NGI Secretariat, after which the proposal will be pre-reviewed by NGI.
If the proposal seems applicable for submission, the applicant will receive a personal link to the ZonMw ProjectNet system for application of the proposal. The proposal will be assessed by the NGI Valorisation Committee.
