Two new Delta research proposals granted
The Delta executive board had just decided that two new postdoc proposals will be granted, starting in the fall of 2019.
An internal representative selection committee evaluated and ranked the proposals, based on the NWO grading procedure (1 representing excellent, 5 representing adequate) that besides scientific quality also weighted the urgency and expected added value for the Delta ITP consortium. This evaluation was then presented to the Delta ITP executive board who decided, based on the ranking and the available budget, to award 2 out of the 7 postdoc proposals this year.
