Opportunities for policy and society

The (technological) innovations in the NWO-MVI research projects contribute to resolving societal issues such as life sciences and health, energy transition, agriculture and food, and digital society.

This societal focus offers NWO-MVI policymakers and civil society organisations a wealth of opportunities. Insights from research projects can result in concrete policy recommendations. For example, it can offer guidelines on how to implement societally responsible innovation processes.

Opportunities for cooperation

Public authorities and civil society organisations can contribute actively to NWO-MVI projects, either as a partner or as a member of the valorisation panel. Not only will the members of the valorisation panel benefit from discussions with each other and the research team, they can also help to ensure that the research results are widely accessible to relevant stakeholders.

It is also possible to learn from the project results without actively taking part in the projects. This portal makes it possible to access research results, see videos, contribute to discussions and to contact MVI experts from research teams in various disciplines.

Representatives of policy-making bodies or civil society organisations can also take part in a valorisation panel. These panels advise research teams on implementation of the research results.
