Innovational Research Incentives Scheme Vidi - Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH)
The Innovational Research Incentives Scheme Vidi is a grant for experienced researchers.
Extension clause parents
NWO changes its extension clause: for biological mothers the extension of eighteen months per child remains unaffected; other parents (fathers and non-biological mothers) are granted a standard extension of six moths per child. Extension for parents is only granted for children who are part of the applicant’s household. Please consult the frequently asked questions on our website for further details.
Vidi is a funding instrument in the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme. It allows researchers who have already spent several years doing postdoctoral research to develop their own innovative line of research, and to appoint one or more researchers for this.
Who can apply
You can apply for a Vidi grant if you have done several years of research at postdoc level. In this research you have come up with innovative ideas that you have been able to independently and successfully develop further. You gained your doctorate no more than eight years ago, calculated from the date of the PhD graduation to the benchmark date for the Vidi round (1 October). This period can be extended according to the extension clause in the case of caring responsibilities or in the case of training to become a clinical specialist. Further information about this is contained in the document ‘Frequently asked questions’.
A researcher may apply for a Vidi grant on a maximum of two occasions.
Researchers from outside the Netherlands may also apply.
What can be applied for
The maximum grant is 800.000 euros.
