NWO call for Holland Chemistry Student Competition 2019
NWO invites applications for the Holland Chemistry Student Competition 2019. Deadline for submitting applications is March 21, 2019. NWO Chemical Sciences organises this student competition, which is powered by the Top Sector Chemistry. Student teams from universities and universities of applied sciences may submit ideas for creative research projects, focusing on societal or industrial challenges.
The competition is open for chemistry students, but also for interdisciplinary teams with students in e.g. biology, physics, computer science, as long as the research question has a strong chemical component.
The budget available for the student projects in 2019 is approximately € 90,000. Up to nine students, in three or four student teams, will receive grants for a research project of two months. Financing is up to € 27,000 for a project for three students, and up to € 18,000 for a project for two students.
