VENI Info-session


Increasing your chances in acquiring a VENI grant by:


This Info session will give you insight into a VENI Talent Scheme application's procedures, evaluation criteria, and important aspects. The VENI application consists of two phases: the first step is the submission of the pre-proposal (early September 2024) and, if selected by the NWO committee, a full proposal (January 2025).

This information session is the first step if you want to apply for this competitive grant. You can join in if you like to know what to prepare for. You are also more than welcome to join this session if you are in preparation for your Veni in the upcoming years but perhaps do not yet want to submit in 2024.


After this session, you can subscribe to the full masterclass of the VENI support given by the UT Grants Office. This registration is found here: SBD Courses | SBD - Intranet (utwente.nl)
