VU University Amsterdam provides assistance to researchers taking part in the NWO grant programme Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (Veni, Vidi, Vici) and in ERC grants. A guidance programme is available for researchers in this category. It varies from one grant scheme to the next, but generally consists of four elements:
- information meetings: information about the grant programme and the support available from VU University Amsterdam;
- workshop on writing a research application: how to write a well-structured proposal to increase its chances of success;
- advisory sessions: discussion of research application in a VU advisory committee – a group of outstanding academics with experience of obtaining external grants and/or as committee members of national and international grant programmes;
- presentation training sessions: a presentation workshop, followed by a mock interview.
The guidance programmes are open to all VU researchers and to all researchers from outside the university wishing to base themselves at VU University Amsterdam. If you would wish to join the workshop grant writing workshops for Veni candidatesyou need to fill in an input lining out some details on your planned project and your CV. Please request this form by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
