Prof. Michel Wensing (IQ healthcare) has been appointed as chair of the NWO Rubicon appointments committee (NWO division Earth and Life Sciences).
The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) is the national research council in the Netherlands and has a budget of 625 million euros per year. NWO promotes quality and innovation in science. The Rubicon programme offers recently graduated PhDs the opportunity to gain experience at a leading institute abroad (for a maximum of two years) or an outstanding research institute in the Netherlands (for one year). Research abroad is the preferred option. The programme also offers talented researchers from other countries the opportunity of performing research in the Netherlands for a year. The Rubicon grant is intended to bridge the gap between PhD and submission of a research proposal for a Veni grant under the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme.
