Grants

Much of the research we conduct is funded by external grants, some of which are personal grants.

  • Theo Klimstra examines the role of identity formation processes in the emergence of personality disorders in young people (VIDI grant).
  • With a VENI grant, Matteo Giletta examines the effects of peers on the mental and physical health of adolescents. 
  • The Veni-project of Wiebke Bleidorm examines if and how the transition to parenthood leads to personality changes in new parents.
