Funding model

The NOMIS Foundation provides flexible support to researchers and institutions based on mutual trust.

To identify NOMIS candidates we exclusively work through our network of dedicated NOMIS nominators. These nominators are high-level senior scientists at renowned research institutes covering a range of disciplines, and are currently located in both Europe and the United States. Following a nomination, we apply an evaluation protocol that combines select criteria regarding scientific excellence with an assessment of the personality, behavior and leadership style of the candidate. This process, which generally spans over several months, includes personal interviews and site visits.

Final funding decisions are made by means of an extended panel review. Once a funding relationship has been established, NOMIS maintains close contact with the funded researchers and carefully monitors scientific developments.
