The schedule with the 2023 submission dates for the Talent Scheme (Veni, Vidi, Vici) has been confirmed. Some changes have been made in the procedures of the new rounds, all designed to further simplify and save both applicants' and reviewers' precious time.
From next year, the entire programme will work with a two-stage assessment process. The instruments Veni, Vidi and Vici will require pre-proposals in all domains. After a positive decision, submitters may submit a more detailed application. In contrast, in the assessment procedure NWO opts for customisation per instrument and per domain. This harmonisation will result in changes in the Veni and Vici assessment process in some fields: SSH and ZonMw are scrapping the referee phase in the Veni. ENW and SSH will no longer conduct interviews for the Vici from next year.
