UvA researchers Eddie Brummelman, Dimitri van den Meerssche, Fabiola Müller and Loes Pouwels have all been awarded KNAW Early Career Partnerships. They will each be given the opportunity to organise an interdisciplinary meeting and will each receive €10,000 to allow them to do so.
This is the second time that the KNAW has awarded the Early Career Partnerships. In total, ten proposals were awarded in this round.
The Academy’s Early Career Partnership gives ten early career researchers the opportunity to organise an interdisciplinary meeting in collaboration with a member of the Academy. The researchers must have received their PhD no more than seven years before. The purpose of the meeting is to explore unconventional, innovative ideas or methods for basic research. The award recipients are given one year to organise the event. The Academy Early Career Partnerships are financed from the Academy Fund.
