Vici grant for Karina Caputi

15 March 2022

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded a Vici grant, worth €1.5 million, to Prof. Karina Caputi. Prof. Caputi can use this money to develop an innovative line of research and to set up their own research groups for a period of five years.

The research project of Prof. Caputi has been named 'The First Steps of Galaxies.' For many years astronomers have studied galaxies, but their formation and growth after the Big Bang remain largely unknown. This Project will investigate the first steps of galaxy evolution as it has never been possible before, with the largest space telescope ever built: the James Webb Space Telescope.
