Vernieuwingsimpuls 2007


There will be a new round of the NWO/Vernieuwingsimpuls (Veni, Vidi, Vici) at the beginning of 2007. The new brochure is available, but not yet at the NWO website. We expect it to appear there soon. In case you are interested, you may copy our brochure (please take up contact with the CTIT secretariat).

The ‘Vernieuwingsimpuls’- programme will run upto 2009. The year 2007, however, will be the last year with full Veni-Vidi-Vici calls, after that, Vidi and Vici will stop. Consequently, in 2008 and 2009 only the Veni-programme will have calls.

For some of the programmes, there is an internal round at the University of Twente. In the table below, you may find some useful information.
