Three researchers from the Utrecht University and the University Medical Centre Utrecht received a Rubicon grant. The Rubicon grant allows these scientists to do their research at top institutes and gives them the opportunity to gain international research experience.
With a Rubicon grant researchers can conduct research for a period up to 24 months at a foreign research institute. For many researchers, experience abroad is an important step in their career. The size of the grant depends on the destination chosen and the length of stay. In this round, 16 researchers in total received the Rubicon grant.
