Open calls

Please refer to the guidelines and formats below for all calls for proposals.

Is this your first group training?

Are you interested in funding for either organising or receiving a group training, but are you new to this instrument? Please take a look at our page on Group Training for more information on all the basics, as well as helpful tips.

Please note that these new calls for Orange Knowledge group training are provisionally open.

The OKP grant award is conditional upon sufficient funds being made available in the budget by the government and parliament, by corresponding official publication in the government gazette (Staatscourant). Therefore, you cannot claim any rights in connection with the opening of this call until it has been confirmed.

We will inform you as soon as possible of the progress of this call after the publication of the upcoming government gazette (Staatscourant).

Update TMT Plus

In December 2019 we announced changes to the TMT Plus instrument to better fill the gap between 'ordinary' one-off tailor-made training courses and multi-annual institutional collaboration projects.

Please note: Processing a COCA form takes some time. Make sure you submit the COCA form before applying for a proposal. You can submit a COCA form throughout the year, well before any application deadlines.

An approved COCA is valid for a maximum of 1 year and can be used for different applications. You don’t need to fill in a new COCA form for a new proposal if you still have a valid COCA form.

If you have any questions, please contact us via email at or by telephone at +31 70 4260 260 (Nuffic Public Information Centre).
