Inclusion and diversity are important to science, both in terms of its quality and impact. In the Netherlands, women make up only a small percentage of the workforce in many science and engineering disciplines. For that reason, NWO today opens the call Incentive Grants for Women in STEM.
With this call NWO aims to retain women who are qualified in science or the engineering sciences, and to provide them with a stable launchpad for an academic career. To this end, this grant will support women who are temporarily without funding but who, nevertheless, have good prospects of obtaining a permanent or more senior research position (from Tenure Track) in science or the engineering sciences. This will involve providing financial support to research institutions, which will enable them to appoint a woman for a transitional period before she takes up that position. One example is when universities offer candidates a permanent or more senior position, but the position in question is not immediately available. The grant can then be used to bridge this ‘gap’.
