Netherlands Genomics


NGI approach

NGI creates societal and economic value from genomics through a network of large-scale Genomics Centres that work on targeted programmes. These centres are consortiums of universities, research institutes, industry and societal organisations.

The Genomics Centres cover the complete chain from basic science to applied research, development and finally valorisation of the results. Societal embedding and creating new economic activity is an integral part of the programme of each consortium.  

NGI is funded by six ministries:

Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality
Economic Affairs
Education, Culture and Science 
Health, Welfare and Sport
Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment

Additionally, NGI is affiliated to and closely collaborates with:
Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) SenterNovem
Technology Foundation STW
