This project investigates the tensions between algorithmic authority and first-person authority, and develops a systematic overview of the relevant ethical implications. Source

Vidi (2015)

The Innovational Research Incentives Scheme Vidi allows researchers who have already spent several years doing postdoctoral research to develop their own innovative lines of research, and to appoint one or more researchers. The grant comprises a maximum of 800,000 euro. Source

Vici (2006)

Vici is targeted at outstanding senior researchers who have successfully demonstrated the ability to develop their own innovative lines of research, and to act as coaches for young researchers. The maximum grant is 1.5 million euros. Source
