The Vidi grant was awarded for Tamara’s research project ‘Off with their heads! The effects of seeing a model’s head and gaze on learning from modeling examples’.

The Vidi grant is part of the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme. The aim is to promote innovation in the academic research field. The scheme is directed at providing encouragement for individual researchers and gives talented, creative researchers the opportunity to conduct their own research programme independently and promote talented researchers to enter and remain committed to the scientific profession.  The Vidi grant is targeted at researchers who have already gained several years of research experience at a postdoc level and whilst doing so have demonstrated that they can generate innovative ideas which they can independently and successfully develop. They may develop an innovative line of research and appoint one or more researchers for this purpose. The grant is for a maximum of 800,000 euro.
