ABC Grants

General information

ABC grants are intended to motivate and enhance interfaculty research collaborations that are of an interdisciplinary nature. The overall mission is to come to a better understanding of the mechanisms of cognition, from perception to decision making, from language to music, and from memory to consciousness. The ABC encourages collaborative projects in which more than one faculty is involved and where there is an integrated plan of how to address a key question in brain and cognitive sciences in an innovative and interdisciplinary fashion.

In 2024 ABC will support two funding schemes: 

The ‘ABC Themes & Transversal Perspectives Funding’ that fosters collaboration within or across ABC Themes or Perspectives and increases their visibility, and the ABC Support Grant that supports ABC members in their (ongoing), cross-disciplinary (preferably cross-faculty) research.
