Synergy '22

Synergy ’22 Award

Synergy '21 was both super exciting and nerve-racking. It’s a great chance to take your research to the real world. Taking part in the competition has surely boosted my passion to bridge science and practice. After all, without Synergy ’21, our coaching podcast PhD Unplugged wouldn’t be reality.

About the award

The Synergy award aims to give PhD students the possibility to explore and present the potential impact of their research on society. A committee will review the submissions and will select four candidates. These four candidates will be invited to pitch their compelling impact ideas at Synergy ’22. During Synergy ’22 the audience and a jury will cast their votes to select the most exciting and innovative idea for societal impact. The winner will be awarded a prize of €2,500 to kick-start the development of their idea. After Synergy ’22, NWO aims to connect the winner with academic and non-academic professionals who are interested in exploring the practical dimensions of the winner’s research. Progress made by the winning idea will be presented at the Synergy Awards ’23.
