BELSPO Postdoctoral Fellowships for Non-EU Researchers in Belgium



Postdoc fellowships to non-EU researchers - SELECTION 2016
The Call for proposals 2016 is open.
The deadline for applications is April 30th, 2016 at 17:00 hour.
In a nutshell...
The stimulation of international mo
bility and the attraction of researchers from abroad is one of the priorities of the European Research Area.
In this context and intending to stimulate the S&T cooperation, the Federal Science Policy Office (BELSPO) does implement a fellowship scheme for highly qualified non EU researchers (i.e. postdoctoral level or equivalent experience), granting them an opportunity to work during 6 to 18 months in a Belgian research team.
This initiative started in 1981. Till now already 750 fellowships were granted:
  • Number of fellowships per country and per year: till 2005
  • Number of fellowships per country and per year: since 2006

Call for proposals
The target countries are those countries with which Belgian Research Institutions wish to strengthen cooperation.
For this call, the list of eligible countries is restricted to:
- the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South-Africa),
- all the African countries,
- Vietnam.
Further eligibility and selection criteria are described in the information note.
