Research funding


Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


The BOF programme for outgoing mobility funds outgoing international research stays by UHasselt researchers for short periods of one to three months.

This programme is intended for postdoctoral researchers, tenure-track assistant professors, ZAP-track assistant professors and independent academic staff members (ZAP). The stay abroad by the researchers has to be part of the scientific research within his or her research group or institute.

Postdoctoral researchers should apply for this fund together with a UHasselt  promoter who belongs to the independent academic staff (ZAP).

An application for this programme must be accompanied by a positive advice from the capacity group council (vakgroepraad). Applications are submitted using the new application form. The application for external funding (FWO - Travel Grant for a long stay abroad, Submission deadline: no later than 3 months before departure) is required and is part of the BOF-application.

Applications can be submitted, depending on the available funds, three times a year: 1 February, 15 May, 1 October. Should the deadline fall on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, the deadline is moved to the next working day at 5 pm.
