Our lifelong learning programme aims to provide students and professionals with an excellent educational environment, and to encourage (young) researchers from the Netherlands and abroad to perform research at the highest level. Talented (young) researchers are provided with an individual tailored guidance programme. This High Potential Programme starts right from the beginning of the academic career, involving the VU and VUmc Honoursprogrammes (HP), the Topmaster's Programme, grant application guidance, personal training and tenure track appointments.
