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

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.
