The Dutch health organisations Foundation DON and the Dutch Diabetes Research Foundation are joining forces to stop type 1 diabetes in the program JoinForces2CureType1.

There are different research lines focusing on curing or preventing type 1 diabetes. But there is no solution yet. The international program JoinForces2CureType1 aims to encourage scientists to think outside the box, to initiate (new) international collaborations, and to come up with innovative basic research ideas that have the potential to ultimately prevent or cure and thus change the lives of people with type 1 diabetes. The research must be focused on working towards the patient.


Conditions and criteria are listed in the document Program description. To apply in the program JoinForces2CureType1 you need to submit the application form (updated on March 27; now text can be inserted into section 1e). 

Deadline Full Application: Monday April 15, 13:00 CET (
