The consultation hours offer one-on-one support for an applicant who is going to submit a personal grant in an upcoming deadline. There are consultation hours for the Marie Curie (MC) incoming and global fellowships, NWO Veni and Vidi, and ERC Starting (StG) and Consolidator (CoG) grants.
For the MC fellowship and Veni application the consultation hour is used to review a fully prepared application. For the Vidi and ERC grants the consulation hour serves as an intake, discussing your idea and CV, which can later on be followed by feedback on the full proposal if needed.
How does it work?
1) Register for one time slot that fits in your preparation time line. If you do not have a user account yet, please sign in first. Then click on the preferred slot. Slots are filled on first come, first served basis. Other time slots are not possible due to the time limitations of the advisors. You can only reschedule by removing your appointment and picking a new slot that is still open. An appointment needs to be made at least 3 days in advance to allow the advisor enough time to prepare. Nick Ollivere and Jorrit Kelder are specialised in the Social Sciences and Humanities; Anna Coyajee, Angela Noble and Anke Klerkx are specialised in the Exact and Biomedical Sciences. Regardless of this, they can all help you with your proposal.
2) Prepare for the meeting. Minimum requirement for the consultation is that you send a cv (preferably in the required template) and that you have an outline of your research plan (max 1 page). Rejected proposals are also suitable as a starting point. For the MC and Veni consultation hours, a fully prepared proposal is required.
3) Send your prepared material at least 3 days before the consultation hour to the advisor. In the confirmation e-mail, you will receive information on how to contact the appropriate advisor.
4) The advisor will read the proposal and give oral feedback during the consultation hour.
