Belgium (Flanders)

At the Fonds Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek - Vlaanderen (FWO), the Weave process has been assigned to the "Junior and Senior Research projects" programme.

You can submit projects in collaboration with researchers from the following universities:

  • KU Leuven
  • University of Gent
  • Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB)
  • University of Antwerp
  • Hasselt University
  • Evangelical Protestant Faculty in Leuven
  • Faculty for Protestant Theology in Brussels
  • Maritime Academy
  • Vlerick Business School
  • Antwerp Management School
  • Institute of Tropical Medicine, perhaps in collaboration with a Flemish or federal scientific institution and/or a Flemish higher education institution.

SNSF-FWO applications are evaluated under the SNSF's project funding scheme. Applicants may have a maximum of two ongoing grants at the same time, provided the two projects clearly address different topics.

In both countries the maximum project duration is 48 months.

The next deadline for submissions to the FWO the FWO is in April 2024.

The FWO stipulates that Belgian researchers whose project was approved start research in January the following year. Even though Swiss researchers have 12 months to start their projects once the funding decision is made, the SNSF recommends that they liaise with their research partners and coordinate their start phase.
