The NWA intends to connect research and society. The Idea Generator call intends to foster curiosity by supporting new ideas into high risk, high gain science projects. The Idea Generator intends to advance research with potential for high societal gain which also comes with a high risk of failure.

In the Idea Generator small projects can be funded to further develop a new idea by doing research. Applicants of all disciplines and backgrounds are welcome.

For the NWA Idea Generator there are no requirements or obligations on the form of the research. This means that any type of research suited to execute the proposed idea is possible. Examples of types of research that could be chosen for are (societal) internships, living labs/field labs/knowledge labs, ‘researchers in society’ where researchers can perform a project at a public or private organisation.
