Research Council

The CARIM Research Council evaluates grant applications to improve the quality and success rate, especially those to be submitted to highly competitive calls, for example, but not limited to, Veni, Vidi, Vici, Dekker fellowships, ERC, Leducq and TTW-OTP.

Upon request, the Research Council is also willing to contribute to the development of other, larger calls, such as CVON. The Research Council assists the candidates with developing a competitive grant proposal by helping them with the development of their ideas and by reviewing the proposal and providing constructive feedback.


  1. Members

Research Office enables successful research by creating a stimulating and supporting environment, and a transparent and effective policy:
• support with the acquisition of grants, with the set-up of collaborations & networks, and with the quest to dedicated facilities;
• build a simple set of instruments and incentives, in line with an effective, efficient, transparent and visible policy.

To facilitate this work, the research office collects and shares figures and information, provides analyses and syntheses, and safeguards focus and quality. The Research Office is a first point of contact when it comes to procedures and protocols. In order to bring the Research Office closer to our researchers, funding advisor Gwynned de Looijer will be present at CARIM (UNS 50, room 5.101) one day in the week.
