Postdoc fellowships to non-EU researchers: Selection 2010
The stimulation of international mobility 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), with co-funding of the EC, does implement a fellowship scheme for highly qualified researchers (i.e. postdoctoral level or equivalent experience) from specific regions, granting them an opportunity to work during 6 to 18 months in a Belgian research team.

The potential Belgian host units are those which are involved in the research programmes and actions of BELSPO (cf. FEDRA) or belong to a federal scientific institution.
