Third Enabling Technologies Hotels call now open

ZonMw, NWO Earth and Life Sciences (ALW) and DTL have opened the 3rd call for projects within the programme Enabling Technologies Hotels. A budget of € 780.000 is available and the call closes October 13th 2015. The maximum budget that can be requested is € 30.000 per project. The Technology Hotel concept entails that researchers (the guests) who do not have access to high-end technologies, can obtain access to these technologies and the connected expertise and infrastructure via a service-oriented facility (the hotel). In the 1st and 2nd rounds of the Enabling Technologies Hotels programme, this hotel concept has proven itself to be an excellent model.

The programme contributes to the aims of the Topsectors Life Sciences and Health (LSH – more specifically the Roadmap Enabling Technologies & Infrastructure), Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials.

The goal of the call is to stimulate collaboration between researchers and technologists in a PPP. Within the framework of this call, there is a preference for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) taking part in the PPPs.

The Hotel access should be used to generate and integrate novel data for the groups concerned. In the 3rd call of the Enabling Technologies Hotel programme a new data management section will be used, which applicants need to fill in. This form can be accessed via DMP online at

Technology hotels

The Technology Hotels that can be accessed through this call are listed on the DTL website. They offer access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and related expertise to external researchers. Technology Hotels are service-oriented facilities dedicated to provide support on project basis to advance life sciences research projects, from experimental design to the interpretation of the data generated.
