Information briefing

NWO Vidi 2023 pre-proposal information meeting (webinar)

Tuesday 26 September 2023

The Grant Development Team is organizing an information meeting (webinar) on September 26 about the upcoming NWO Vidi call (pre-proposal) with the deadline of 2 November 2023. The Vidi is for researchers who have (max 8 years after PhD) postdoctoral research experience. It aims to provide talented researchers the opportunity to establish or expand their own research group and conduct independent and innovative research.

If you are eligible and thinking of preparing a Vidi proposal, sign up and find out more about the details of the call (if NWO has published the call). We will include the harmonization process NWO has implemented for the Talent scheme and explain the differences between domains and changes in relation to the previous call. On top of that you will hear the ins and outs of the Evidence-based CV with the (renewed) format for Key Output and Quality Indicators. And you can learn from the experience of a former laureate and a committee member.

There will also be the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. In this session we will focus on the pre-proposal submission and assessment, but we will also explain the full 2-step application procedure for all domains. At the end of the session, you will have the knowledge and insight to decide if a Vidi grant is a suitable grant for you now.

Preliminary programme:

  • 9:00 Welcome and information about the call
  • 9:30 Hear from a committee member
  • 10:00 Hear from a laureate
  • 10:30 Q & A & support 
  • 11:00 Closure

NWO Talent Programme
