01 october 2020

Due to tightened coronavirus measures announced by the Cabinet on 28 September, the Fund Office will be closed for all in-person meetings from Wednesday 30 September. This will apply until at least 20 October. The application process for all current grant programmes and open calls continues as usual. If you have questions about your application, a project or event, and possible consequences as a result of COVID-19, you can read the answers to the most frequently asked questions about COVID-19 here. You can also find the answers to current frequently asked questions, plus some practical tips for your grant application.

'Safety first,' says director Syb Groeneveld. 'That is why we're moving our daily work practice completely into the digital domain, ranging from committee meetings to the telephone exchange, because we will of course continue to be available. It is the only possibility we have to make a positive contribution in the coming period to reducing the chance of further spread of the virus'.

For this reason, all our public activities at the DDW have also been cancelled or a suitable online alternative for certain activities is being sought. More information will follow in the coming period.
