The programme supports research projects focused on developing science. Often these projects involve research within a specific field of expertise. Research teams use each other's research facilities, unique collections and archives and specific research methods.
These collaborations can lead to bilateral joint PhD tracks, joint publications in renowned peer reviewed journals and collaborations within an EU context.
Van Gogh applicants are excellent researchers. They must have an outstanding track record and international exposure.
Prospective candidates include Veni, Vidi Vici scholars, French and Dutch ERC scholars, Spinoza Price winners, members of De Jonge Academie and their French counterparts. Researchers who are recognised as excellent by their own institution may also apply.
