Veni-, Vidi- and Vici grants

at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE)

In 2000, NWO, the KNAW and the universities established the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (IRIS). The aim of the programme is to give an extra boost to innovative research. The IRIS is a personal grant, offering talented, creative researchers the opportunity to perform their chosen research and to give them a better chance of advancement in academic research institutions.

The scheme has three parts:

  • Veni: Open to applications from recent PhD holders, enabling them to develop their ideas further over a three-year period.
    Maximum amount EUR 250,000
  • Vidi: For researchers to develop their own innovative research line and appoint one or more researchers.
    Maximum amount EUR 800,000
  • Vici: For senior researchers to create their own research group.
    Maximum amount EUR 1.5 million

Below is an overview of Veni, Vidi and Vici grants awarded to FSE over the years.
