The Netherlands Antibiotic Development Platform

The Netherlands Antibiotic Development Platform (NADP) facilitates the collaboration between public and private organisations, to enhance the development of new antibiotics and alternative therapies for infectious diseases in humans and animals.

NADP will identify relevant research groups, institutes and companies involved in chemical, biological, and/or biomedical antibiotic research to forge collaborations through targeted connections and will organise regular meetings with interested parties.

NADP Vouchers

An important objective of NADP is to increase R&D productivity related to new antibiotics and alternatives. To promote the accelerated development of promising 'leads', NADP has developed a financing instrument specifically for this purpose: the NADP Vouchers.

These vouchers can be used in various phases of drug development to gain advice and intensive supervision of research projects from independent consultants or CROs that have specific knowledge and expertise pertinent to the pharmaceutical development process and clinical applications.
