Innovation grants to inspire and improve higher education

The Netherlands Initiative for Education Research (NRO) contributes to innovation and improvements in education by coordinating and funding educational research. They organise the Comenius programme to stimulate innovation in Dutch higher education. Mid June, NRO organizes two information meetings to inform and inspire people about how and why to apply for the grants.

The programme includes three different grants: the ‘Teaching Fellow’, ‘Senior Fellow’ and ‘Leadership Fellow’ grants, that enable professionals in higher education to implement their ideals and ideas in practice.

2023 themes

  1. Accessibility in higher education
  2. Well-being in higher education
  3. Working on the challenges of the future
  4. Open theme – The entire breadth of ‘Fit fo the future’

New calls for proposals for all three grants will be published end of June, 2022.
