Sixteen researchers from the University of Groningen (UG) and the UMCG have been awarded VENI grants within the framework of NWO’s Innovational Research Incentives Scheme, as opposed to ten last year.
VENI grants are intended for researchers who have recently gained a PhD and have significant and original talent for innovative research. The grant is up to € 250,000 and offers these young researchers the chance to develop their ideas over the next three years.
The VENI grants are awarded annually by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). A total of 154 research projects across the country were successful this year
