CArdioVAscular Research Information
System (CAVARIS)

The Netherlands Heart Foundation (NHF) subsidizes a substantial part of all cardiovascular scientific research in the Netherlands. The scientific content of the NHF-supported programs and projects is made available for the cardiovascular research field through CAVARIS, the CArdioVAscular Research Information System. This information can be accessed at the following levels.

  NHF programs
    Targeted programs
Fellowships
  NHF projects
 

In addition, CAVARIS contains information on the cardiovascular research programs of the universities, research institutes and research schools in the Netherlands. This information can be accessed at the following levels:

  Research organizations
    Main research programs
      Research themes
        Sub-themes
 

To illustrate the relationship between NHF-supported research and the research programs of the research organizations, each of the NHF-projects and programs is linked to a specific sub-theme. In this way, the embedment of NHF research activities within the research programs of the various universities, research institutes and research schools in the Netherlands is revealed.

 

Please note:

  • The NHF-funded programs and projects are updated at least once a month.
  • Information on the cardiovascular research programs at research organizations in the Netherlands is updated once a year in the period July-September.
  • The aim is to provide all information in English. A small part of the text is still in Dutch but will be translated in the near future.
