The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and NWO. Organisations with two different backgrounds, areas of expertise and goals, but also two partners of the DCVA with a joint mission. Learn what these two parties stand for, how they are valuable to the DCVA, and how the DCVA is valuable to them.
The DCVA is an interdisciplinary partnership of twelve leading organisations representing patients, academia, healthcare professionals, industry and government. Although they have joined forces to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease, each of these partners also has its own background, ideas, ideals and goals.
Meet the partners
In this fifth edition of Meet the partners, we interview leaders of two of these partners, namely Niek Dubelaar LLM MSc (left), Head of Knowledge Transfer Office of KNAW and Dr. ir. Herry Nijhuis (right), Director NWO Applied and Engineering Sciences (TTW). KNAW and NWO come from two completely different areas, but can reinforce each other within the DCVA. We ask them three questions, after which they ask each other an extra question.
