Stefan de Jong
Stefan is Grant Advisor with Luris, the Knowledge Exchange Office of Leiden University and Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC).
Stefan is contact person for the research areas in humanities and social sciences.
The Grant Development Team of expertise centre Luris provides succinct and targeted information and expertise on research funding and relevant (policy) developments to researchers at Leiden University.
Using different information media, trainings and personal advice, the team offers information on grant opportunities, knowledge on policy and political backgrounds, development of new funding instruments, evaluation of proposals, best practices in writing proposals and cross-cutting conditions (such as data management and ethics). In order to achieve this, the team works closely together with other departments to make other relevant expertise within Leiden University accessible.
The Grant Development team:
- Informs researchers and support staff at Leiden University about research funding opportunities, application processes and developments,
- Organises workshops and trainings on the acquisition of research funding,
- Gives one-to-one advice on the match between the funding opportunity, the researcher’s profile and research ideas,
- Reviews proposals and, for complex (multi-stakeholder) projects, coaches researchers through the process of shaping the research proposal,
- Gives strategic advice on funding strategies and related developments.
Before joining Luris, Stefan worked as a researcher for the Rathenau Instituut in The Hague. His research topics included valorisation and evaluation of academic research. He publishes in academic and professional journals and is involved in the public debate about valorisation. He also tweets about science policy, with special attention for societal impact and research funding (@Stefan_de_J). Stefan wrote a doctoral thesis about valorisation policy.
