ABC Creative Mind Prize 2015 (€ 10,000)
The Amsterdam Brain and Cognition (ABC) center of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Freek and Hella de Jonge Foundation invite young academics to submit a proposal for the ABC Creative Mind Prize 2015 (Creatieve Geest Prijs) for high-quality, innovative, and original research related to creativity, cognition and/or the workings of the brain. Deadline for submitting proposals is April 15, 2015.
The aim of the Creative Mind Prize is to draw further attention to research on creativity and its underlying cognitive processes, such as the perception of painters, the associative abilities of cabaret artists or the architectural design process. The research project may be conducted in various academic disciplines, as long as it is themed around 'cognition and the brain'.
The prize winner receives € 10,000, to be spent in the framework of the submitted research proposal. ABC provides the opportunity for the winner to conduct his / her research plan in cooperation with top scientists in the field, supported by an ABC Talent grant.
The winner will also have the opportunity to carry out his/her research plan with an ABC Talent Grant of up to € 100,000. The prize will be presented June 1, 2015 in a ceremony at the Flemish Arts Centre De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam.
