Female applicants in a fix because of adapted NWO procedures

Oproep NWO

In response to the adaptation of the NWO procedures with regard to the VI (VENI-VIDI-VICI) scheme, we, as Athena's Angels, have received various signals from female applicants. We are concerned that the adjustments will act against them, and that there seems to be insufficient flexibility at NWO to accommodate them.

In an open letter to NWO, we have explained our concerns in more detail, and made a number of suggestions for possible solutions. We hope that NWO will take these considerations into account in further decision-making, and we are happy to think along with practical solutions if necessary.
