Unfortunately I have not been granted a VENI grant for my proposal Linguistic Knowledge Discovery in Dutch language variation databases (LINKDIS). My proposal was judged 'fundable' and my researcher's qualities as being very good. Apparently very good just isn't very good anymore these days... But will happlily and relentlessly resubmit until I got what I want. [Researcher quality: 2,94; Proposal quality: 3.14; Result: 3.04. On a scale from 1 (excellent) to 9 (poor) that's considered very good.]
