Talent Day 2016

Every year, researchers at Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) successfully manage to secure grants and subsidies for their research. For quite some time, EUR has been among Europe's best in terms of the impact of our researchers' work on that of other scientists. It is really special to be among the best in such a competitive research environment. At EUR, an excellent tradition is putting our top researchers in the limelight on Talent Day.

On 8 March 2016, the Executive Board did proudly present the most talented researchers of the past year. These researchers have become eligible for various NWO subsidies, an ERC Starting Grant, ERC Consolidator Grant, ERC Proof of Concept Grant and EUR and Erasmus MC fellowships.

The 74 students who successfully took part in the Erasmus Honours Programme in 2015 will also be present. These students stand at the very beginning of the academic career path; with their grants and subsidies, the laureates have gotten off to a fine start on the long, arduous road leading to a successful academic career.

The Talent Day has been made jointly possible by the Vereniging Trustfonds EUR.
