Veni award for psychologist Barbara Braams

Developmental psychologist Barbara Braams has been awarded with a Veni funding for her research about risk behaviour in young people. This award offers Braams the opportunity to develop her ideas over a period of three years.

Risk behaviour in young people

Risk-taking behaviour is widely studied in the lab, but the relationship with real-life behavior is unclear. This proposal aims to relate lab measures and real-life risk-taking behavior.

The Veni funding of up to 250,000 euros is intended for excellent researchers who have recently obtained their PhD.  More than 1100 researchers submitted an application for a Veni. With 154 awards, NWO is investing a total of 38.3 million euros in fundamental and curiosity-driven research. 
Veni is part of NWO's Talent Scheme
