Information session FWO: Research projects / grants /SBO & TBM 25 jan 2016
The Flemish landscape for research funding has been restructured. As of 1 January 2016, IWT (Agentschap voor Innovatie door Wetenschap en Technologie) and Agentschap Ondernemen have joined forces. As the “Agentschap Innoveren en Ondernemen” they will be the first contact point for researchers interested in business-oriented (applied) research funding (e.g. Baekeland mandates, Innovation mandates, TETRA, O&O,…). This means that the PhD scholarships in strategic basic research, the projects strategic basic research (SBO) and the TBM programme (Applied Biomedical Research with a Primary Societal Goal) have been transferred to FWO. In the upcoming weeks the call for projects strategic basic research and the call for the TBM programme will be launched by the FWO. In parallel the yearly call for FWO research projects and research grants (Krediet aan Navorsers) will be launched.
Therefore the Research Coordination Office organizes a combined information session on the FWO call for research projects and research grants (Krediet aan Navorsers), the FWO call on projects strategic basic research and the FWO call on the TBM programme. First FWO coordinator dr. Hans Willems will inform participants on the modalities of the FWO call for research projects and research grants (Krediet aan Navorsers). Next FWO coordinator dr. Tom Van de Putte will clarify the FWO call on projects strategic basic research. The session will be closed by FWO coordinator dr. Patricia Menten who will elaborate on the TBM programme.
More information on the calls can be found on the FWO website:
