Funding Opportunities

As a researcher it can be difficult to find your way around the many and continuously changing (inter)national funding opportunities. How do you acquire the information and advice that is relevant to you and your field of research?

Research Professional

Research Professional is an online database that contains news and information about funding opportunities for European researchers. You can search for relevant calls and enter your own search criteria, like closing date or discipline, with the advanced search option. Examples of general search terms for Dynamics of Youth could be migration, youth or addiction

When on campus, you automatically have access to the Research Professonal database. To access Research Professional off campus you need to subscribe. Having a personal account has more advantages: you can set e-mail alerts for interesting calls within your own discipline, and you are able to save your search queries.

Get started with these quick guides and tips and join the Utrecht University group on Research Professional.

Research Support Office

The Research Professional database is extensive, but by no means exhaustive. For comprehensive information or personal support, visit the Research Support Office (RSO). The Office has appointed Diederik van Iwaarden to Dynamics of Youth. Diederik identifies (national and international) funding opportunities and provides Dynamics of Youth researchers with appropriate advice. He can also help with writing applications and drafting budgets.

If you have any questions or need personal advice or assistance, don't hesitate to contact Diederik van Iwaarden at
