The NWO Domains Social Sciences and Humanities and Applied and Engineering Sciences have set the pre-proposal phase in the next Veni funding round open for application. All candidates within the social sciences, humanities, applied and engineering sciences should submit a pre-proposal by 28 August 2018. The proposal will consist of a CV and a concise research idea. The compulsory Veni pre-proposal is part of an NWO pilot.
The deadline for full Veni proposals will – just as for the NWO domain Science – subsequently be in January 2019. The call for proposals and the application form for the Veni round can be found on the NWO website.
The pre-proposal pilot in the Veni Scheme is one of the outcomes of the NWO plans to reduce the application pressure. This pre-proposal that consists of a CV and concise research idea offers more room for the exceptional qualities of the individual researcher.
NWO will carefully monitor the pre-proposal pilot and based on the outcomes of this it will take a decision about how future funding rounds will be realised.
