Two Vidi grants

Dr Thea Hilhorst of Disaster Studies and Dr Monique Nuijten of the Rural Development Sociology group were each awarded Vidi grants this summer. They are two of the 79 excellent young Dutch scientists who have been awarded a maximum of 600,000 euros to develop their own line of research over the next five years. The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NOW) awards Veni, Vidi and Vici grants to individuals at different stages in their careers. / GvM
