NOBEL LAUREATES

The Nobel Prize is the world's most prestigious prize in the field of science. Recipients of this prize include several scientists associated with Utrecht University.

ERC GRANTS

The European Union has set aside a substantial budget in the form of European Research Council grants to support individual outstanding researchers pursuing ground-breaking research. Many researchers at Utrecht University were awarded an ERC grant.

NWO

The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) is one of the main funders of Dutch science and promotes the quality of scientific research through such means as the Spinoza Prize, the Innovation Research Incentive Schemes (Veni, Vidi, Vici) and the Gravitation programme. Utrecht University has proven very successful in attracting personal research grants.

Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW)

The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) confers scientific and scholarly awards and administers funding schemes. One such award is the Academy Professor Prize, which was allocated to Utrecht University professor René Bernards in 2013.
