Dutch Caribbean Research Week

In the week of 14-18 June 2021, NWO is organizing the Dutch Caribbean Research Week.

Registration for this week is closed.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at caribbean2021@nwo.nl.

This first time we’re organizing a programme in which we highlight a number of studies, bring the community together, present an advisory report and launch our joint online community platform.
