What can you expect?

You can ask for financial support for all kinds of activities, such as a symposium, cultural or social activities, PR materials or a web campaign, or a project with high school students; surprise us! We particularly value initiatives that have a sustainable or transferable impact. This means: projects that are not only relevant to the people involved, but that are beneficial to the wider Faculty of Science community – now and in the future.
