Network Institute members secure NWO’s Creative Sector funding

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!
