FEB researcher Dr Thom de Vries has been awarded a Veni grant as part of the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme run by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The personal Veni grants are worth up to a maximum of € 250,000 and enable talented researchers who have just completed a PhD to conduct research of their own choice.
De Vries is a research fellow within the Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior programme. His awarded project is entitled ‘Pushing boundaries’. De Vries: ‘Organizations are inevitably confronted with a host of disruptions, which may range from malfunctioning equipment to extreme weather conditions or even terrorist attacks. I examine how organizations can limit such disruptions’ adverse consequences by optimizing the way their teams collaborate with other teams inside and outside the organisation.’
