No fewer than twelve highly promising TU Delft researchers have been awarded Veni grants by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research.

The grants will be used to help the researchers develop their ideas and carry out research in the next three years. The candidates were selected on the basis of their outstanding talent for conducting innovative scientific research. They were free to choose the subject of their research. The grants amount to a maximum of 250,000 euros for each researcher.

The Veni grant is one of three types of grant of the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (www.nwo.nl/en/funding/our-funding-instruments/nwo/innovational-research-incentives-scheme/index.html). The other two grants are the Vidi grant (for experienced post-docs) and the Vici grant (for very experienced researchers). The Innovational Research Incentives Scheme was set up in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the universities.
