Dutch policy promoting scientific excellence
Increasing focus on excellent research
Strategic partnerships in research
Companies and public knowledge institutions have always collaborated, in many forms and to many ends. The advent of strategic partnerships between companies and knowledge institutions is a new development, however.
Innovation in and with cities
Research and innovation are a growing feature of city life. Innovation districts and city campuses are becoming increasingly common and, in a typically urban take on research and innovation, all kinds of parties are working together to find innovative solutions to society’s challenges.

Science and Technology provide us with infinite possibilities. However, the pros and cons of any new innovations need to be carefully considered. The Rathenau Instituut facilitates a dialogue about dilemmas relating to science and technology in politics, science and society at large.

Spinning plates : funding streams and prioritisation in Dutch university research
The present report Spinning plates – Funding streams and prioritisation in Dutch university research offers a detailed analysis of how university research is financed in the Netherlands. It is based on an analysis of the budgets and annual financial reports of government and of research organisations. We have also used data drawn from our surveys of university deans and members of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences and The Young Academy for our report 'De ontwikkeling van vakgebieden in Nederland'.
