  2. A proposal that develops and/or optimizes new methodology for the health sciences (such as a new measurement technique, a new research design or a new analysis tool).
  3. A proposal that creates a new collaboration outside Radboudumc, within Radboud University (including other faculties) or with an international partner (the PhD should spend at least 6 months at the partner’s institute).
  4. Other.
The project proposals (also the externally evaluated proposals) should be submitted as a pre-proposal using the application form.
 
The procedure:
  • The RIHS Grant Review Committee will assess the pre-proposals on the aspects: 1. suitability of the project for a junior researcher; 2. innovative content; 3. scientific or societal relevance.
  • A maximum of 10-15 projects will be selected by the Grant Review Committee for submission of a full proposal.
  • The full proposals will be assessed by the RIHS Grant Review Committee for 1. suitability of the project for a junior researcher; 2. innovative content; 3. scientific quality; 4. preliminary results; 5. scientific or societal relevance; 6. collaboration.
  • An opportunity for a concise rebuttal to the review will be provided.
