Four junior researchers, affiliated to the RIMLS, have each received a Veni grant of 250,000 Euro from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). Our researchers received this prestigious grant for their remarkable and original talent and their ability to carry out innovative research.
They have only recently completed their doctorates and have now the challenging opportunity to develop their scientific ideas during the coming three years. The Veni grant from the NWO's Innovational Research Incentives Scheme is one of the most prestigious grants for young researchers, and to be awarded is considered an important step in an academic career. Although the Veni researchers are at the beginning of their careers, they have demonstrated to not only possess a remarkable talent in conducting academic research, but are also at the top of their scientific field internationally.
As RIMLS we can make the difference with these newly identified high potentials who can start their own research lines. Hopefully, they will also serve as role models for our current PhD's and motivate them to pursue a similar Veni track
During the application process our Veni applicants were supported by the RIMLS Grant Committee and the Department of Valorization. Their successful support is greatly appreciated and certainly contributed to this outstanding achievement.
On behalf of all RIMLS colleagues, we wish our laureates a lot of fun and excitement performing their studies and outlined plans in the years to come. Congratulations to all of you!
