FOM --> NWO --> 2017
From 2017 onwards the current FOM organisation will form a new NWO organisation together with other NWO units. During the course of 2017 all of the information on this website will be modified in accordance with the new organisation structure of NWO. For further information we refer you to the information page about the NWO transition.
As soon as the transition has become a fact, the FOM office will be split into three parts: one part (granting) will become part of the NWO Domain Science, one part will become part of the Operational Management unit of the new NWO, and the part that supports the FOM institutes (AMOLF, ARCNL, DIFFER and Nikhef) and the university workgroups will be reorganised into the NWO Institutes Organisation (NWO-I). The NWO institutes NSCR, NIOZ, ASTRON, CWI and SRON will merge with the Institutes Organisation with effect from 1 January 2018.
