The PLN Foundation connects researchers worldwide, motivates research, stimulates and finances young talent and out-of-the-box ideas. Our Foundation finances pioneering research. Obtaining funds for pioneering research is difficult. Thanks to our funding, the research can start. After positive results money can be obtained from other funds. In this way we follow new developments and insights into science.
