Major funding acquisition from NWO’s Creative Sector programme
Members of the Network Institute have been extremely succesful in NWO’s Creative Sector funding programme.
A team from Organisational Science (Irma Borst, Marcel Veenswijk) got 300k€ for research into crowd funding, and a team from Language and Communication (Irene Costera Meijer) got 800k€ for research into new forms of on-line journalism.
This means that 2 of the 3 succesful projects from the VU for this major NWO call are from researchers in the Network Institute!
