Frequently Asked Questions

Can I put myself forward as a candidate?

If you are interested in taking part in the Radboud Excellence Initiative, but have not been invited, you may approach one of Radboud's designated nominators to discuss your interest in the project and prospective cooperation. The nominator will put a candidate forward.

Can a research group nominate more than one researcher?

Yes, they can. However, the Initiative strives for diversity and a spread across faculties and areas of research. Therefore, if more than one nomination is submitted by the same research group, they are asked to add their own ranking order of said nominations. This is also the case when the applications are put forward by different nominators from the same research group.

What is the deadline for application?

There are two rounds annually, with deadlines on 1st November and 1st May.

The deadline for applications for the current nomination round is 1st November 2022, 23.59 h. If you want to nominate a candidate, please make sure you send in a complete set of documents before that time.
