Case: Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Utrecht University

The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Utrecht University is the leading veterinary knowledge center in the Netherlands. From 2018 – 2020 Catalyze has given support to PIs affiliated to this faculty by organizing workshops and individual coaching, with a focus on fundraising. Several PIs continue to pursue their research projects and have successfully attracted funding.

“Catalyze supported the One Medicine research-theme within the faculty of Veterinary Medicine by providing individual coaching and workshops to our researchers. The workshops helped our researchers in creating or refining their research vision, improving their networking-skills and provided an overview and insights into the current funding landscape. For the individual coaching, we highly appreciated the tailor-made approach for researchers in different stages of their academic career which has led to successful grant applications.”

– Professor Marianna Tryfonidou, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Utrecht University.
