Young Scientist Travel Grant 2023: Huub and Julienne Spiertz Fund / Broekemafonds (WUR PhD and Postdoc only )

You are here

The goal of both the HJS Fund and the Broekemafonds is to encourage young scientists in the field of agrobiology, crop science and plant breeding, with a particular focus on sustainable food production, to at an international level communicate their research findings (e.g. conference) or interact with other scientists (e.g. working visit).

To this end, depending on the number of eligible submissions, we annually award 2-4 grants of € 750,- to 1500,- (max.) to young scientists who want to visit a foreign university / research institute or an international conference, of which one grant will be awarded to an application where the work is focussed on plant production or plant breeding in the Netherlands. Grants can be spent on travel, accommodation and registration fees.
