Researchers with a PhD who are employed by a Dutch research institution can request funding for the replication of ‘cornerstone research’ in the disicplines of the NWO Research Area of the Social Sciences and ZonMw.
Applicants are researchers who hold a PhD and are employed for the duration of the proposed project at one of the Dutch knowledge institutions specified in the call for proposals.
For this pilot programme, funding can only be requested for the replication of socalled cornerstone research: research that has had substantial consequences with respect to theory or policy and for which it is therefore important to assess whether the results on which these consequences are based are reproducible. In their proposal the applicants must argue why the original research that they want to replicate can be regarded as cornerstone research and why it is important to replicate this.
In the call, DANS is mentioned for advice about access to data via EASY, about access to data that is stored in repositories abroad, and can provide help with the preparations for depositing data that emerges from the research.
The deadline for application is June 6th 2019, 14:00. For more information and all terms and conditions, please visit the NWO website.
