Momentum is a 1-year program designed to give talented postdocs and associate professors the opportunity to acquire and strengthen their professional skills to prepare them to become successful PIs. The program covers three seminars during which different teachers and tutors will train participants on a range of subjects like project management and innovation.

The competition to join the program was hard. The evaluation committee received 62 applications and only 15 candidates have been selected on the basis of their academic curricula. “I think it`s wonderful to get this kind of support from UiB at this critical stage in my academic career and look forward to meet the other candidates”. 

We congratulate Willem and wish him good luck with this exciting opportunity.
