Grant Support services

The Grant Support Team of IXA UvA-HvA provides tailor-made support for applications for research projects.

Ways of providing support

  • Finding the right opportunity: Together with you we can help you determine what the right funding possibilities are for you.
  • Brainstorm session: We can discuss your proposal outline with you in a brainstorm session to fine-tune your project idea.
  • Feedback on proposals and rebuttals: We can give you feedback on proposals and your responses to reviewers' comments.
  • Interview training: When you are invited for an interview, we can help to organize a mock interview to get feedback on your presentation and your answers to questions from the committee.

Information Provision

IXA UvA-HvA has access to and/or is member of many information networks, like the VSNU (the Association of Netherlands Universities), EUPMAN (the EU Project Managers Association in The Netherlands), LERU League of European Research Universities), NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research), RVO (Netherlands Enterprise Agency), the Horizon2020 sounding boards, and Neth-ER (Netherlands house for Education and Research).

We share information with you through:

Timeline and intensity of support

The point in time when you contact us determines how much support we can give you. For some deadlines there are many applications and we have to divide our time. As a scientist you are busy, and you might prefer to work close to the deadline. However, if you send us your proposal shortly before the deadline we cannot guarantee to give you feedback.

Collaboration with Faculty teams

The Grant Support team collaborates with support staff in your faculty on the area of research funding acquisition. See the section Support at Faculties for more information and contact details.
