The Innovational Research Incentives Scheme Vici is a grant for senior researchers.
Vici is a funding instrument from the Talent Scheme. It gives senior researchers the opportunity to build up their own research group, often in anticipation of a tenured professorship. The research group must become structurally embedded in the research institution.
Who can apply
Vici is targeted at outstanding senior researchers who have successfully demonstrated the ability to develop their own innovative lines of research, and to act as coaches for young researchers. Researchers who have obtained their PhD within the last 15 years can apply for a Vici grant.
The assessment procedure of the 2017 Vici round aligns with NWO’s new organisational structure. The Vici competition will be assessed by five committees: four committees corresponding to the four new NWO domains and one committee for cross-domain applications. The five committees are: Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), NWO domain Science (ENW), Applied and Engineering Sciences (TTW), Health Research and Development (ZonMW) and the cross-domain committee.
When to apply
- Submission deadline for the 2017 round (pre-proposals) is 23 March 2017, 14:00 hrs (CET)
- Closing date for the submission of full proposals is 24 August 2017, 14:00 hrs (CEST)
