Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research


The Foundation Board of NWO-I supervises and advises the institute

Since January 1, 2018, Royal NIOZ is merged with NWO-I, together with the other NWO institutes AMOLF, ARCNL, ASTRON, DIFFER, Nikhef, CWI, NSCR and SRON. These institutes are governed by a single board, the foundation board of NWO-I. The NWO-I foundation board forms a personal union with the NWO executive board, which means both boards consist of the same people. The NWO-I office (located in Utrecht) supports NIOZ in the area of financial management, strategy, communication, legal affairs and personnel.

The Foundation Board of NWO-I consists of:

  • Prof dr Stan Gielen
