Consortium on Individual Development

About the community

The CID community counts around 74 members: 20 principle investigators (PI’s), 25 PhD students, and 29 postdocs and senior scientists (assistant professor to professor) from eight different institutes: Utrecht University, University of Amsterdam, Leiden University, University of Groningen, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Radboud University Nijmegen, and VU University Amsterdam.


The CID researchers are the driving force behind the consortium. They deploy their knowledge, experience and dedication to enable and promote research and innovation within the consortium.

To ensure integration of expertise it is mandatory that at least two PI’s are involved in the supervision of PhD-students and postdocs that are appointed on CID budget. The graph below visualizes new PI collaborations on PhD and postdoc projects financed from CID. These collaborations are additional to the already existing joint projects between researchers.
