The Dutch National Research Agenda – what’s in it for me?

17 October 2018

Funding bodies increasingly expect researchers to form consortia to work on multidisciplinary research programmes. This is also true when applying for funding through the Dutch National Research Agenda (NWA). But what actually are consortia? How does one go about forming a consortium? Can early career researchers lead consortia? Do all disciplines lend themselves for consortia? How to find suitable partners from both academic and non-academic institutions? What kind of projects is the National Research Agenda looking for?

On October 10th, the Young Academy Groningen hosted a very succesful lunch for early career researchers during which these questions were addressed. Several speakers shared their experience with consortium development and grant application. The event was part of the YAG ECR Lunch series.

Below you can find the powerpoint presentations the speakers gave during the lunch:
