News - 23 February 2023 - Communication EWI

Today the Dutch Research Council NWO announces that Stephanie Wehner will receive a Vici grant. The grant is aimed at senior researchers who have successfully demonstrated the ability to develop their own innovative line of research. Wehner is one of twelve researchers in the Science Domain who receive this grant.

The NWO Talent Programme offers personal grants to talented, creative researchers. This enables them to conduct the research of their choice. The Talent Scheme has three funding instruments (Veni, Vidi, Vici) tailored to various phases in researchers’ scientific careers. The Vici grant targets senior researchers. In doing so, they have also supervised young researchers. Researchers who receive a Vici grant can further develop their research group, often in anticipation of a tenured professorship, if they do not already have one.
