NWO-logo The board of FOM supports the conclusion that the NWO organisation is in need of some change in order to respond more effectively to societal developments. The FOM board does not support the suggested solutions to form a uniform organisation without divisions that are recognizable by the disciplines. FOM is committed to contribute to a stronger NWO organisation, building on the close connections that already exist while retaining the strengths and core values of our organisation. The close collaboration on multidisciplinary and societal themes, combined with our specific knowledge and contacts in our field of research, results in surprising new excellent research. Read more
FOM has awarded a total of 12 million Euros to six new research programmes. The research groups will work in areas where Dutch physics has a superb international record and there is a clear scientific and societal interest. This varies from researching fundamental questions about the universe that have not been answered by the standard model, up to research into variable behaviour of multi-cellular organisms at the level of individual cells.

Figure 1. Models of bubble columns at different scales Production processes in the chemical industry can be made greener: with less energy and smaller waste flows. That requires a better understanding of the production processes. Theoretical and experimental research groups from the universities of Eindhoven, Twente and Delft are joining forces to make a contribution to 'greening' these processes. The FOM Foundation is investing 780,000 euros in an Industrial Partnership Programme. Together the multinationals AkzoNobel, DSM, SABIC, Shell and Tata Steel are also contributing 780,000 euros, over a period of six years, to make a total investment of 1.6 million euros. Read more
