NWO asks for applications for the Vdii-call within the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (Vernieuwingsimpuls). The closing date for submitting proposals is October 2, 2014. The maximum amount of grant will be € 800,000. Vidi is part of the Incentives Scheme.

Researchers who have obtained their PhD within the last 8 years can apply for a Vidi grant.
The Innovational Research Incentives Scheme Veni, Vidi, Vici has been set up in 2000 by NWO, KNAW and the universities jointly. The aim is to promote innovation in the academic research field. The scheme is directed at providing encouragement for individual researchers and gives talented, creative researchers the opportunity to conduct their own research programme independently and promote talented researchers to enter and remain committed to the scientific profession.
