NWO Masterclass VIDI call 2024
6 June 2024
10:00 - 16:00
Obtaining a VIDI-grant from NWO is an important milestone in the research career of (young) scientists in the Netherlands. The Talent Scheme is highly competitive with average success rates between 10% and 20% depending on year and science division.
We will address the typical characteristics of a VIDI application considering the different NWO domains and incorporating recent developments including signature of the DORA agreement by NWO and the latest development regarding the introduction of pre-proposals for all domains for VIDI applicants. In addition, focus will be on the correct interpretation of the evaluation criteria for the PI, for the research project and for scientific adn societal impact including their interrelationship and in combination with the proposal template.
This workshop is directed towards talented researchers who consider submitting an NWO VIDI pre-proposal for the next deadline in November 2024 and possibly a full proposal in March 2025. Participants will receive strategic and practical input for developing a competitive VIDI project and writing a convincing (pre-)proposal thereby increasing their chances to receive this prestigious grant.
