THE NETHERLANDS

( A ) NWO - The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research ( B ) IIAS - International Institute for Asian Studies

NWO promotes scientific research at Dutch universities and research institutes and seeks to raise the quality of that research. Innovation is a key element in this endeavour. NWO also promotes the dissemination and use of research results achieved wholly or partly with NWO support. NWO pursues an active information policy aimed both at researchers and at the media, politicians and the public at large. To help it achieve these aims NWO receives funding from the government. Most of this funding comes from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, though other ministries also contribute. NWO targets all fields of research activity pursued in the Netherlands, from physics to theology and from information technology to research on ethnic minorities.

The International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) is a postdoctoral research centre based in Leiden and Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Its main objective is to encourage the study of Asia and to promote national and international cooperation in this field. The geographical scope of the institute covers South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, and Central Asia. The institute focuses on the humanities and the social sciences and, where relevant, on their interaction with other sciences.
