The strength of the CCC’s achievements and fundamental outputs thus far has generated interest within the scientific community to continue investments in future CCC programs. The Netherlands’ leading institute, which traditionally funds scientific projects of the highest caliber, is the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). This led, in 2014, to the establishment of the NWO-CCC Partnership Program. This partnership seeks to stimulate effective cooperation between science and industry in research on the role of carbohydrates in human and animal health. Researchers can request funding in this research field. In 2016, the first research program in this partnership has been started, namely Carbokinetics. In early 2017 the second call, CarboBiotics, for proposals has been launched.
