Hestia: Impulse for refugees in science – NWO

Purpose:  Make research and the academic labour market in the Netherlands accessible to researchers living in the Netherlands with a demonstrable refugee status. In doing so, NWO enables these academics to start or continue their career that was interrupted in their home country and simultaneously enrich the research landscape with the experience and expertise they bring with them. By making short-term funding available, NWO provides the opportunity to join already funded research projects in all fields of research and build a network in the Netherlands. At the same time they will be able to actively share knowledge and expertise, and to familiarise themselves with the research landscape.

Criteria: Full, associate and assistant professors and other researchers with a comparable position can submit an application if they currently lead a research project funded by NWO or ZonMw that will overlap with (at least) the first 10 months of the Hestia application and if they have a tenured position or a tenure track
Project costs: 160.000 € for 12-18 months (total budget 1.2M €)
Deadline: 27 September 2022
