The Freek & Hella de Jonge Foundation

The Freek & Hella de Jonge Foundation awards a prize to a young scientist with a brilliant and original idea for a research project centering around creativity and the inner workings of the human brain. De Creatieve Geest Prijs ("The Creative Mind Prize") should bring attention to research into the creative capacities of the human brain - e.g. the visual perception of painters, the associative thinking of stand-ups, or the spatial imagination of architects.

The laureate will have the opportunity to carry out the proposed research as part of the Brain & Cognition program, and thus to make a name as a promising researcher. The prize will be awarded in the spring of 2014.
