UM Veni information meeting 2022 - 21 April 2022

During this online information session we will give more information about the grant instrument, the Veni target group, application and evaluation procedure, and the UM Veni pre-proposal training. Also, a Veni laureate and evaluation committee member will share their experiences and tips. There will be ample room for questions.

Since a few years, NWO has organised the Veni selection into two parts: 1) pre-proposal phase based narrative CV and a short research idea; 2) full proposal phase for selected applicants.

Given the importance of the narrative CV in the Veni selection procedure, UM organizes a dedicated training intended for young researchers who are preparing a Veni pre-proposal in the upcoming round (pre-proposal deadline 6 September 2022),. This training will run from May until beginning of July 2022. The training takes place in small groups of 3-4 researchers on either Tuesdays or Thursdays (all half-day sessions). Due to the limited number of participants, a selection process will take place. This will be explained in more detail in the information session.

The training consists of:

  • kick-off session on Tuesday 24 May, 9.00-11.00
  • writing session focusing on academic profile on Tuesday 14/Thursday 16 June
  • writing session focusing on key output on Tuesday 5/Thursday 7 July

You can register for the information session until 20 April.

Note that this registration is only for the general Veni information session on 21 April. Registration for the pre-proposal training will take place separately and communicated about at a later moment.
