LUF Praesidium Libertatis Grant

The Praesidium Libertatis Grant of € 75.000,- is awarded to a young talented researcher, who is able to (further) develop innovative and original research ideas. The grant is also meant to be a first step towards larger grants. Applications will be assessed by the LUF Committee for Academic Expenditure (CWB). 

Two LUF Impulse Grants will be awarded in autumn 2024. Each faculty can nominate up to two projects. The criteria and the procedure can be found on the right side of this page (or below on your smartphone).

Per faculty two applications may be submitted, so there is a pre-selection. The deadline for submitting project proposals is 1 July 2024. Please note that the pre-selection deadline is earlier and different for each faculty. Please contact the person coordinating the process within the faculty.
