NWA grants 1.8 million to Prof. Heinemann’s consortium on the limits of cell growth

30 November 2020

The Dutch Research Agenda (NWA) has granted EUR 1.8 million to the consortium coordinated by Prof. Matthias Heinemann of the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute ( GBB ). The interdisciplinary consortium of chemists, biologists and physicists will investigate what limits the growth of cells.

This knowledge is important for tackling numerous societal challenges. Dutch citizens will get involved through novel strategies for communicating fundamental science, co‚Äźdeveloped by artists, media designers and scientists.  


The 1.8 million has been awarded in the second round of the NWO's National Science Agenda (NWA) program: Research on Routes by Consortia (NWA-ORC). Within a NWA-ORC consortium, a team works on interdisciplinary research. The entire knowledge chain, both public and private parties, works closely together. Several other consortia involving researchers of the University of Groningen and the Faculty of Science and Engineering, have been granted an NWA-ORC.
