The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded Veni grants to eight talented young researchers at the University of Groningen and at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) who have recently gained their PhDs. Four of them are researcher at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (formerly known as the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences). They will each receive EUR 250,000 which is intended to fund their research for three years.
Veni grants are part of NWO’s Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (‘Vernieuwingsimpuls’) and are one of the most prestigious grants for young researchers. To land a Veni is an important step in an academic career. The Innovational Research Incentives Scheme was set up in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the KNAW and the universities.
Four of the eight winning projects are
