Twenty-six young researchers, including four from the Radboudumc, in the field of pediatrics and related fields can go abroad for a scientific research project/work visit in the coming year with a KNAW Ter Meulen grant. 

Ter Meulen grants are between €4,000 and €25,000, for a work visit abroad of a few months to a scientific research project abroad of 12 months. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, the Medical Sciences Fund was not open for applications in 2020. In 2021, therefore, both the 2020 and 2021 Ter Meulen grants budgets were made available, totaling €416,000.
