Hasselt University encourages the international and intersectoral mobility of its junior researchers and wants to promote (international) contacts between research groups.
Thanks to financial support from the Flemish Government, the doctoral schools of Hasselt University are able to award travel grants to PhD students and postdoctoral researchers for participation in an international summer school or a short research stay abroad. Also, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers can be awarded intersectoral mobility grants for intersectoral summer schools or research projects conducted at and in collaboration with non-academic institutions (companies, hospitals, …).
The third call for 2022 concerns the period September - December 2022. Deadline of submission is 21/08/2022 and the activity (summer school or research stay) needs to take place between 01/09/2022 and 31/12/2022. You will receive the result of your application by 31/08/2022.
All PhD students and postdoctoral researchers with a UHasselt supervisor can apply, and the proposals will be evaluated by the doctoral school council.
In total there will be three calls for mobility in 2022:
In light of the current and expected situation concerning the further spread of COVID-19, the Executive Board of Hasselt University has decided to issue specific mandatory travel guidelines for both staff and students. Make sure to always consult and respect the latest UHasselt travel advice before starting any international mobility!
