Programmes are awarded funding in a highly competitive round. The proposals submitted are evaluated on the basis of oral presentations, recommendations from advisory committees and a strict evaluation by international experts. Based on these evaluations, FOM's Executive Board eventually awards the programmes for a predetermined number of years.

To facilitate the management of developments in Dutch physics, FOM's Executive Board has divided FOM's sphere of activities into seven subfields. The programmes carried out within a given subfield can be found in the menu on the left.

For further information about the yearly single round for programme applications, please see the section research grants.

Further information about the seven programmes awarded in 2016 can be found below.

  • Scanning new horizons: emergent space-time, black holes and quantum information
  • The mysterious size of the proton
  • Physics beyond the Standard Model with cold molecules
  • Strange metals
  • Single-molecule protein sequencing
  • Neurophotonics: the physics of signals in neural networks
  • Skyrmions as information carriers
