The project Rewarded! includes both a pilot fund and an enrichment program. The purpose of Rewarded! is supporting and inspiring participating research groups; to make best practices & lessons learned widely accessible and to advise knowledge institutions about facilitating and appreciating science communication and public engagement by scientists. Rewarded! is implemented by the KNAW and was made possible by the support of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. The project Rewarded! runs until October 2022.
