 Information session FWO: Research Projects & Grants, SBO projects and RRI & DMP UHasselt - 01 February 2018

The Research Coordination Office organizes a combined information session on the FWO call for fundamental research projects and research grants (Krediet aan Navorsers) and on the FWO call on strategic basic research (SBO) projects.  In this session the FWO rules for participations, application modalities and evaluation processes of the different programmes will be explained. Special attention will be given to the planned changes in the FWO regulations and procedures in 2019. 

An important change, compared to previous calls, is that FWO has made data management a key element of its policy. Data management covers procedures on the description of research data and metadata, their storage and long-term preservation, the discoverability, the designation of responsible persons, the handling of highly sensitive data, and the open access to and sharing of research data. From these calls onwards, the application form in the FWO e-portal contains 5 questions concerning data management that need to be addressed. Furthermore, if a proposal receives funding, a data management plan will be requested. 
To introduce our researchers to data management and to prepare them for drawing up a data management plan, the Research Coordination Office organizes an extra session on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and Data Management Plan (DMP), directly after the FWO information session.
