Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMw)
The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMw) believes that a better quality of care and public health requires theoretical knowledge as well as its practical implementation. For this reason, ZonMw supports scientific research and innovative applications. How? Find out more on the ZonMw website.

Cooperation within the TPI
Thanks to the Transition Programme for Innovation without the use of animals, the MKMD programme and ZonMw have been pooling their resources in order to achieve their aims more quickly. As part of their joint efforts, they have been working to stimulate, inform and convince researchers at public as well as private institutions. For those researchers, the ultimate aim is to realise innovations that contribute to improving the quality of health care. The MKMD programme and ZonMw have been working together with various other organisations such as animal welfare and patient groups, regulatory bodies and health funds.
