Grants Week - "Everything you always wanted to know about research funding"

  • will be later announced

The pressure on researchers to find external funds for their research is very high. Fortunately, the European Union and the Dutch NWO have suitable funding programmes, but for many researchers it is difficult to find the right programme and to understand the rules of the game. 

For that reason the research support offices of the University of Groningen and the UMCG organise the Grants Week.

After successful events in 2011, 2012 and 2013, this 4th Edition offers three days in which you will be informed about possibilities for individual career development grants (NWO/Vernieuwingsimpuls and ERC), programmes for Internationalisation and Education (e.g. Erasmus+), and funds for collaborative projects in Horizon 2020 (pillars 2 and 3).

Experts of NWO, Netherlands Enterprise Agency (, UMCG Research Office, and the University of Groningen Research and Valorisation team, International Office, and Talent Development team, will be present on the main programmes to inform you, discuss your ideas, and answer questions. Additionally, successful UMCG and RUG laureates will share their knowledge and experiences.

General programme overview and targeted audiences can be found here.
