introduction This project “small innovative project” (SIPs) organizes the selection, assessment, monitoring and reporting of SIP projects in the DDHT program. SIP projects are small projects in which new innovative ideas that do not fit into the current research are tested and are by definition short projects (< 1 year).
There are 2 types of SIPs: i) Institute SIP (WR-SIP) and ii) specific/ dedicated SIPs in which cooperation between WR units is realized. The topics for the specific/ dedicated SIPs have been selected from a broad internal WUR consultation. For 2021, 5 WR-SIPS and 5 specific SIPs have been launched. The topics in the SIPs address 1 or more pillars in the DDHT research program.
