Outgoing mobility

The purpose of outgoing mobility can be a research stay or the attendance of a convention, workshop or course abroad.
BOF, as well as FWO and the European Horizon programme provide funding for the mobility of researchers. In addition, thanks to the support of the Flemish government, there is also funding available within the doctoral schools for mobility of PhD candidates and postdocs.

Incoming mobility

Within Hasselt University, as well as at the Flemish and European level, there are funds available for incoming mobility. These can be used to bring useful foreign expertise to Flanders.

EURECA-PRO mobility

The EURECA-PRO mobility calls want to facilitate and encourage mobility in the context of research and innovation cooperation between EURECA-PRO partner universities.

Intersectoral mobility

Intersectoral mobility between universities and industry gives researchers a better understanding of industrial aspects of research, and stimulates the interaction between university research and business. This mobility can take place both in Flanders (VLAIO) or in Europe (Horizon Europe).
