NWO Vici 2015 open
NWO invites applications for the Vici-call within the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (Vernieuwingsimpuls). Deadline for submitting preliminary proposals is March 26, 2015. The Vici grant gives senior researchers the opportunity to build up their own research group, often in anticipation of a tenured professorship. Researchers who have obtained their PhD within the last 15 years can apply. The maximum amount of grant will be € 1,500,000.
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.
