KNAW Grant Week 2021

Getting ready for the funding jungle: NWO and EU

Do you want to become even more successful in writing grant applications? Join the KNAW Grant Week 2021!

Answers to this question will be addressed in several lectures and workshops during the KNAW Grant Week. Organised by the Knowledge Transfer Office (KTO) together with the Career Development Centre, it will take place from 2 to 5 November 2021 at the KNAW-Trippenhuis in Amsterdam.

What will you learn?

During the Grant Week, you will learn all about applying for individual grants such as ERC but also learn more about grant writing skills in general, or project management. Next to that, you can follow workshops on ‘proof of concept and feasibility funding’. Further perks of this event are a special  training programme for Veni applicants.

Above all, the various workshops and lectures will help you ‘getting ready’. Experts from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), NWO, the Academy and grant consultancy firms will share their knowledge with you. 


Registration for the workshops is for KNAW employees only. Please register with your KNAW email address. You can registere here. Deadline for registration: 25 October 2021.

You can either register for one afternoon session for a workshop of your choice, or attend the whole ‘week’, but this is not obligated.
