Every six months, through the Open Call scheme, Het Nieuwe Instituut gives cultural organisations in the Netherlands the opportunity to apply for a financial contribution to enable a foreign guest to visit the Netherlands in order to stimulate international exchange and to encourage greater understanding of the Dutch design field in the broadest sense.

The next round, for visits that will take place in the second half of 2020, was set to launch in May. Due to the continuing restrictions on international travel, Het Nieuwe Instituut is considering other more sustainable forms of international visitor programmes. We are currently considering whether the forthcoming round of the Open Call requires a different format. More news about this will be announced shortly on this website and announced by email to those who have applied in the past.

If you have made an application in the past and plan to do so again, you can send a brief proposal by email to the address below. For other questions or comments, you can also contact Kim Bouvy at You can find information about the procedure and conditions for the regular structure of the Open Call here.
