Veni grant for Miriam Meissner

The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded a Veni grant to eight young, highly promising UM scientists. At FASoS Miriam Meissner received a Veni Grant for her research project ‘From minimalism to post-growth?’.

In total 154 young scientists receive a Veni grant worth up to 250,000 euros. The grant provides the laureates with the opportunity to further elaborate their own ideas during a period of three years.

From minimalism to post-growth?

To achieve climate targets, industrialised societies need develop economic systems that function without growth. Currently, a transformation towards ‘post-growth’ economies is unpopular and therefore unlikely. This research explores the potential of minimalist initiatives in promoting post-growth values and practices through the innovation of everyday organising patterns.
