Wouter van den Bos receive an Early Career Research Fellowship 2018–2020 from the Jacobs Foundation
The foundation thus supports outstanding scientists from all disciplines who deal with the development and learning conditions of children and young people.
Wouter van den Bos, researcher at the Center for Adaptive Rationality, is to receive an Early Career Research Fellowship 2018‒2020 from the Jacobs Foundation. The foundation supports talented and innovative researchers of all disciplines whose work promises to improve the development and learning of children and adolescents. In his research, Wouter van den Bos investigates the relation between the developing brain and learning and decision-making across adolescent development. With the fellowship, he would like to gain insights into social learning in the classroom setting and how this may change with age—specifically, how social learning strategies develop from childhood to late adolescence.
